PRACTICAL POINTS FOR DISCUSSION:
1. God will often speak to us through His appointed leaders so we had better be ready to listen (Haggai 1:1-2).
2. Before we put our sinful desires above God’s direct will, we should first think about what we are doing (Haggai 1:3-5).
3. When things are not going right in our lives, we ought to consider how we are living (Haggai 1:6-7).
4. God will often give us explicit directions concerning what He wants us to do, so failure to be faithful to Him will result in disaster (Haggai 1:8-11).
