Every year EBC’s Food Pantry receives large donations of food that must be sorted before it can be stored and distributed. You may be surprised by the amounts of expired food donated every year. For a number of reasons, we cannot accept and distribute these donations, but even if we legally could… we wouldn’t. What does it say to the family who receives a bag full of food that no one wanted anyway? In these cases, the donation was really just another trash bag – but instead of going to the dumpster, it came to the food pantry. This is hardly a sacrificial gift that reflects a compassionate and gracious heart.

What would you think or do if someone said, “God is going to come and live with you.”?  You would probably pause and consider your ways or you would think that whoever uttered those words were nuts. Yet, in the context of what the Israelites had just heard from Haggai they were probably inclined to believe the former.

How often have you gone on vacation only to find your house in disrepair, the lawn out of control, perhaps a water leak, or trash you forgot to take out? Can you image leaving for a year and these items not be tended to? What a mess. How about an un-mowed lawn or rotting garbage or a water leak for not one but sixteen years? The property would be almost unrecognizable. Yet, that is what happened when Haggai was called to speak to the people of Israel. Some 50,000 had returned from exile and started to build the temple (Ezra 1-3 ) but when opposition came they quit and eventually grew indifferent to the temple. They ceased building and the worship of God in the way He had designed. For sixteen years the temple and center of worship stood still while they focused on their own houses.

God is angry, wrathful, and jealous. These aren’t attributes we often think about because they make us uncomfortable, but they’re important characteristics of God’s holiness. Imagine God’s holiness in the midst of sin if he wasn’t wrathful against it. Consider the love of God if he was not angry about injustice. How could anyone imagine that God truly wants what is best for his children if he isn’t jealous of our worship when it is instead given to idols. Remember, God’s passions and emotions are unchanging because they are absolutely perfect – his love doesn’t wax and wane depending on his mood; and his anger doesn’t flare up simply because he’s been offended.
