Bible: Haggai 2:15-19

2:15 Now therefore reflect carefully on the recent past, 1  before one stone was laid on another in the Lord’s temple. 2  2:16 From that time 3  when one came expecting a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten; when one came to the wine vat to draw out fifty measures from it, there were only twenty. 2:17 I struck all the products of your labor 4  with blight, disease, and hail, and yet you brought nothing to me,’ 5  says the Lord. 2:18 Think carefully about the past: 6  from today, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, 7  to the day work on the temple of the Lord was resumed, 8  think about it. 9  2:19 The seed is still in the storehouse, isn’t it? And the vine, fig tree, pomegranate, and olive tree have not produced. Nevertheless, from today on I will bless you.’
