August 26 "Seeking Self at the Sacrifice of God" Haggai 1-3

"Consider your ways--literally, "Set your heart" on your ways. The plural implies, Consider both what ye have done (actively, Lamentations 3:40 ) and what ye have suffered (passively). Ponder earnestly whether you have gained by seeking self at the sacrifice of God." Matthew Henry Are you looking for much? The Hebrew infinitive expresses continual looking. You hoped that your store would be full and fuller but did you think about building the mirror of God's Presence, his church and its family. God is stirring His Spirit even today in our midst of a hurricane and eclipse. He Alone is the One who gives alacrity and love to reach out from our paneled houses to help those with walls fallen down. Haggai 1:9
