Clearly Jesus is unhappy about what he sees going on in the temple – it seems as though there were barriers being put in the way of people trying to worship God.
What barriers are we aware of in our lives, what barriers may we be putting in the way of others, to prevent His worship today? And what are we going to do about it?
Reading: Matthew 21:12-17
Questions to think about:
- How would you describe the actions of Jesus in the temple? What do you think they achieved?
- Are there things that Jesus would challenge us about where we are preventing people meeting with God?
- Jesus took pleasure in children shouting out in praise. In what ways will you seek to praise God this week?
