1. Introduction

The book of Haggai consists of two small chapters near the end of the Old Testament of the Bible. Despite being small in size, it contains material that is of significant relevance to all ages. One of the primary messages from this book is that God must be put first in the life of a believer. As well as that, it is shown that God is quite specific in his requirements and does not allow re-interpretation of them. Instead the encouraging warning is given to “consider your ways”.
