Greetings God bless you this day!
This is day two of Jesus' last entry into Jerusalem:
JESUS AT THE TEMPLE
THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling
there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those
selling doves, "It is written," he said to them, "My house will be called the house
of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers." Matthew 21: 12-13
It did not take Jesus long, after his successful entry, to ruffle the feathers of those
who were more interested in a profit than the coming Passover Feast. People
traveled from far places to attend the yearly Passover and could not bring their
sacrifices with them. The money changers were taking advantage of this and
Jesus was angry, not only because they were cheating, they used the temple area
to do it! Even today, if you want to make Jesus angry, take advantage of the those
who cannot defend themselves... that will do it!
Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
