Thinking About The “Whys” In Our Actions

Haggai 1 : 5-7 

“This is what the Lord All-Powerful says: Think about what you have done. 

6 You have planted much, but you harvest little. You eat, but you do not become full. You drink, 

but you are still thirsty. You put on clothes, but you are not warm enough. You earn money, but 

then you lose it all as if you had put it into a purse full of holes.  

7 This is what the Lord All-Powerful says: Think about what you have done.” NCV 


How often do people get caught up in things , and having to have the newest gadget , or the 

latest toy  on the market. As parents, the example set rubs off onto the kid’s lives also. 

Something new and better, or more exciting, always hits the advertising circuit, and has to be 

had. None of these things satisfy, which is why there is always more of the new improved  

same stuff coming out. 

Look at God’s words when He said Think about what you have done.  Then God repeated this 

statement, and that is usually emphatic to make sure we get the point. 

Perhaps this is a reminder that we need to look at what we have spent our time and money on, 

and see if it was at all beneficial for God’s Kingdom.  

If we look honestly, and sincerely listen for the still, small voice of God, our lives may change 

and the Glory of God may be seen and His Kingdom grow. 

Perhaps each night we should think of what we have done  during the day and see if it has been 

beneficial and worthy of God’s Kingdom.  

Again in the morning perhaps we should reflect on the previous day and think of what we have 

done  from the perspective of some time having passed and time for words or actions to have 

sunk in, and see if our mindset is still the same.  

When all words and actions are in line with God’s Word, we know He will be pleased and may 

entrust more to us.
