“So they came to Jerusalem.
Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.

Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a ‘den of thieves’.”
During this last week of Lent consider your temple.
Have you allowed the thieves of complacency in your walk with God, gossip, resentment, bitterness, anger, poor dietary habits and the like to proliferate?
Has your house of worship become riddled with the thieves of gossip, emotionalism and more?
Seek this day to cleanse the temple.
For it is written:
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
