HOME GROUP DISCUSSION
-Explain in one or two sentences the historical situation that the book of Haggai falls into. Why might this be so significant?
-What was the main problem that God corrected in the people in chapter 1 of Haggai? Why was a building such a big deal?
-Read Haggai 1:2, 9 together as a group. Are there any similarities in our own hearts and lives to those of the Israelites in Haggai's time? Personally, what is the biggest struggle for you in this regard?
-Read Haggai 2:6-9, 21-23. Why does God use the language of "shaking" to describe what He will one day do?
-As you interact with non-Christians about the gospel, do you think it would sound like good news or bad news that God will overthrow the "throne" and "strength" of kingdoms? Why?
