Session 5.46 for November 24, 2013
Last week, we saw the Israelites rebuilding the temple in the book of Haggai. This week, we see that the Israelites have completed the temple and wholeheartedly worshipped God. Yet, the honeymoon period has faded, and the Israelites are struggling with the idea of worshiping God and being blessed for their righteousness in the midst of a world that is full of unrighteous people who are prospering while the good people suffer. The juxtaposition of wholeheartedly following God’s will and living a prosperous life is something that we still struggle with today.
