After entering Jerusalem, one of the first places Jesus visits is the temple. There, inside His father’s house, Jesus sees various merchants doing business. To see a place of worship converted into a center of commerce is something that Jesus cannot abide. Speaking with unmistakable authority, He commands them to leave.
Sometimes our own lives can seem as crowded and conflicted as the temple in Jerusalem. Jesus Christ showed us that we can have the courage to remove unnecessary distractions that come between us and our relationship with the Father.
