And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He *said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a robbers’ den.” Matthew 21:12-13
As one of His very final acts, Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple. He then proceeded to heal the lame. This purification of the temple was a fitting conclusion to His ministry, prior to His betrayal.
What areas of greed does Jesus need to make in me? How do I value prayer?
God, I thank You that You hear my prayers. As the song goes “Lord, prepare me, to be a sanctuary, for You”.
