A Different Way of Seeing

This morning as I was reading about the money changers in Jesus’ day and how He threw them out of the temple; I wondered how this applied today.  Mark 11:16-17 states “And would not suffer than any man should carry any vessel through the temple.  And He taught, saying unto them, ‘Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.'”  Suddenly, a light came on and I thought of going in to worship with a heart filled with anger and hatred or a head filled with worry!  Couldn’t He have been talking of that as well because none of that has any place in a house of worship.  Even as I pray at home, am I checking to see that none of that resides within my heart?
