Haggai 1:1-2 - In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, [2] Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.  

Procrastination is presented here as sinful. God’s people were living as though knowing to do right, and then not doing it was an acceptable proposition. Procrastination eventually turns into amnesia or at least willing ignorance. We elevate excuses to a level of importance equal to that of God’s word. Which then helps us institute selective amnesia, God will be forgotten. But the gratification of our immediate desires never seems to follow the same course.    

We often justify our lack of service to Christ by way of noting a lack of active sinful activity in our lives. As though not committing murder or not robbing a bank were so commendable they require free passage to sainthood. We are given no insight into the moral life of Judah in the first chapter of Haggai, but the Lord rebukes their lack of service to him. He did not address idolatry, adultery, or murder. The trouble here was that God’s people were content to set God aside.
