The Money Changers

Matthew 12: The Money Changers: The Charm of Home
12 Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves. 13 He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves!”[f]
14 The blind and the lame came to him in the Temple, and he healed them. 15 The leading priests and the teachers of religious law saw these wonderful miracles and heard even the children in the Temple shouting, “Praise God for the Son of David.”
But the leaders were indignant. 16 They asked Jesus, “Do you hear what these children are saying?”
“Yes,” Jesus replied. “Haven’t you ever read the Scriptures? For they say, ‘You have taught children and infants to give you praise.’[g] 17 Then he returned to Bethany, where he stayed overnight.
Matthew 12:12-17
Making money on the Word of God is not looked favorably on by our Lord. The message from the Kingdom of God is free to anyone that wants to hear it.
All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,
