Max Lucado Devotional 10 August 2023 Message
When religion is used for profit and prestige, people are exploited and God is infuriated.
When Jesus entered Jerusalem the first day of Passover week, Matthew 21:12 and 13 says, “He went into the temple and threw out all the people who were buying and selling there. He turned over the tables of those who were exchanging different kinds of money, and he upset the benches of those who were selling doves. Jesus said to all the people there, ‘It is written in the Scriptures, “My temple will be called a house for prayer.” But you are changing it into a “hideout for robbers.”’”
Hucksters. Faith peddlers. People making a franchise out of the faith. This was not a temper tantrum. It was an intentional message: “Cash in on my people and you’ve got me to answer to.” You see, God will never hold guiltless those who exploit the privilege of worship.
