We all believe that we should live a righteous life and keep the commandments that YHVH provided for us in His Torah. We also believe that we should love our neighbor as ourselves. If we study the scriptures a bit more we see that this may not be enough. We should learn from Haggai that we need to do more than follow the law. The message that Haggai had to take to the remnant clearly shows that we need to ensure that we are obedient to YHVH and that His will is always our number one priority. Haggai also explains to the people that our responsibility does not stop with our own righteousness. We need to go even further that that.
