“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)
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?
