His ministry took place in a single year, 520 BC — one of the most difficult in the history of Israel. The Israelites had returned home after the Exile, but home was a mess. Haggai called God’s people to tend God’s promise and to tend their faith on the most difficult of days. There is a word from Haggai for all of us who know what it is like when “the way that it is... is not the way we would have it to be."
