Haggai sought to challenge the people of God concerning their priorities.

He called them to reverence and glorify God by building the Temple in spite of local and official opposition. He exhorted them to turn from the uncleanness of their ways and to trust in God's sovereign power.

The Book of Haggai is a reminder of the problems the people of God faced at this time, how the people courageously trusted in God and how God provided for their needs.
