Pin It Now!

Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”  Haggai 1:1-6

Here God Almighty explains why there has been want of things among the people, it is because the people have been caring about their own things forgetting about building the temple of God. Let's pause right there...

In I Corinthians 3:16 Apostle Paul says, "Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?" He goes on to explain:
By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. I Corinthians: 3:10-15
I do not think more explanation is needed as it is all detailed by Paul in the above scriptures. Just as he warns us let us be careful how we build giving careful thoughts to our ways. If what we build survive we will receive His reward. Amen!

Happy last Saturday of 2017! Let us praise God for His mercies in our lives all through these 52 weeks of 2017!
