Jesus Righteous Anger!

Did Jesus get angry? Yes, rightfully. Greedy people were selling sacrifice animals in the temple. These merchants where talking advantage of the people who came to worship in the temple.

Jesus called them thieves. They must have been selling animals at prices that were more than the animals were worth.

Not only that, the temple was a place for prayer, not merchandise. These merchants were a distraction for the people who wanted to worship.

It is a lesson to us as true believers. Do we allow the love of money or anything else distract us from worshipping God as we should? It is a good time to search our own hearts and make sure that nothing stands in our way when we worship.
