Chaos, or healing and transformation

And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” (Matthew 21:12-13, NIV)

This sounds like a pretty serious event; tables flying, doves and pigeons flying, money changers chasing the money that has been spilt everywhere. Certainly a scene of ‘chaos’. Then in verse 14 we read, ‘The blind and the lame came to him at the temple and he healed them.’ Not so chaotic – more healing and transformation.

So you would have to stop and think, what should the temple be used for? Making money? Or healing, transformation, and prayer?

God bless.
