12On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. 13Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see whether perhaps he would find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14He said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it. 15Then they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling and those who were buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves; 16and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. 17He was teaching and saying, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’?
But you have made it a den of robbers.” 18And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. 19And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city. (Mark 11:12-19, NRSV)
We should not be doing business with others to make more than we should. Jesus says the house of God is a house of prayer and it has become a den of thieves because those in the temple doing business so others can have what they need to worship were taking advantage of people and charging more than was necessary.
As Christians and followers of Jesus we should charge what is needed and not take advantage of others. We need to help all in need and work for the betterment of the kingdom.
Live in the love Jesus gave you.
