On Wednesdays, the My Faith and Fitness Blog will feature a passage of scripture and questions to encourage us to reflect on how we can each live a life that pleases God and allows us to fulfill the plans that God has prepared for us.
12 Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a den of robbers.” ~ Matthew 21:12-13 (NRSV)
How can we ensure that our bodies (God’s temple) remain clean and without blemish? What steps can we take to maintain a holy and righteous lifestyle?
What strategies can we use to encourage our brothers and sisters to keep God’s house as a house of prayer?
What actions should we take when we see ungodly or unrighteous behavior in God’s house?
