In Haggai 1:7, the Word says "Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways".  Haggai was speaking as a prophet to the people of God. The Lord was stirring them up to remember why they were working and who they were working for.

We live in a very self-preserving culture. The world is currently driven by selfishness and ego. As followers of Jesus, however, we ought to consider our own ways as well. What is the motivation behind what we are doing? Who are we really doing it for? Are we trying to preserve what is only temporary or are we living in light of eternity?

Today's scope:

Prayer: Lord, help us not live like the culture around us and become so self-absorbed. Let our lives be God-encompassing where You are the reason and the hope that we have for all that we done. Let us focus outward on others instead of inward on ourselves. Teach us to be like Jesus. In His name we pray, Amen!

Action: Post Haggai 1:7 on a mirror in your home. Let it remind you to consider your ways!

An office "selfie". Sort of...
