The Prophet Haggai
From today's reading by the Prophet Haggai (Haggai 1:1-8):
'So now, the Lord of Hosts says this: Reflect carefully how things have gone for you. You have sown much and harvested little; you eat but never have enough, drink but never have your fill, put on clothes but do not feel warm.'
This passage certainly rings true for our world today. Greed and want is the new idol and we can never have enough! We never have enough money or food or drink! We never have enough of what we perceive to be good things! Yet we can have everything we need if we open ourselves entirely to God's Love.
