Quotes to Consider:

T. V. Moore on Zechariah 8:11-12: "The faithfulness of God to his Church and people in the past is a guarantee that He will not forsake them in the future, and an encouragement to go forward in the great work of erecting the spiritual temple, of which this material temple was but the outward symbol. Let our hands be strong in this great work, by remembering the fact that God has ever been faithful to his promises in the past, and therefore will continue to be faithful to them in the future."
