some of the Israelites were allowed to return to rebuild the temple.
Israelites came back to the land with passion and
eagerness to rebuild.
But as time passed,
their priorities changed.
They began to build their own houses and
take care of their own needs.
But the things weren't getting better,
although they worked hard.
Then God gave his message through the prophet Haggai,
"Whay are you living in luxurious houses
while my house lies in ruins?
Think about why things aren't getting better.
I have called for a drought on your fields
to starve you and your cattles."
