Saint Haggai - A Saint To Encourage Helping Out At Church
After the people of Judah returned from their decades-long exile in Babylon, they ran into a variety of difficulties and began to lose enthusiasm in rebuilding their Temple in Jerusalem. It was Haggai who inspired them to complete this important project of getting God's Home completed.
Thus says the LORD of hosts:
Reflect on your experience!
Go up into the hill country;
bring timber, and build the house
that I may be pleased with it,
and that I may be glorified, says the LORD.
~ Haggai 1:7-8
