The Foundation of Blessing
Passage: Haggai 2:10–19
Even if the returned exiles choose to honor God 100% and prioritize him in their lives, God wants them to realize that the true foundation of blessing is not their actions, but his faithful, loving kindness. God blesses Israel first because he has made a promise to Abraham, their ancestor, and second, because they honor him with the hearts and not just their hands. Obedience born out of faith always leads to God’s blessing!
