In our current series "Expect the Best" we looked at the challenge behind these verses yesterday: Haggai 1:5-6 "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.' " In the little book of Haggai in the Old Testament of the Bible, God says five times "Give careful thought to your ways." In this first mention of the phrase above, God wants us to think about why we never seem to have enough and we never seem to get ahead. The people in this account seem to work really hard and yet are barely staying afloat. Do you ever feel that way? Later in the passage, the Lord tells them that if they chose to put God FIRST in their lives that He would meet their needs. This is something that we all struggle with, myself included, because there is always something pulling our attention away - sometimes really good things and sometimes really bad things - We seem to be well aware of the "bad" things that do this but even the good things can keep us from moving forward in our journey with God. God want us to all choose the best and Expect the Best from Him as we intentionally decide to give Him our best. Join us on Sunday at 10:30 at 58343 S. Apple Road, Osceola to learn more about how we can live these truths out together! Expecting the Best! Pastor Greg
