“It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.'”

– Matthew 21:13 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Jesus takes prayer seriously. So seriously that He reacted violently when He watched merchants exploiting people in the temple. The community of faith was not meant to be a social center where people advance their careers, but a place where prayer is seen as the primary activity of the people of God. Can that be said of our churches today?
