Commentary on the Gospel of
God’s temple shall be a house of prayer. To pray is not only to utter words of praise and thanksgiving but more importantly is to nourish and be in intimacy with God. But what happens to the heart of man? We’ve turned it into a den of thieves! We allow the robbers to freely enter our hearts every time that we give in to temptations and entertain the worldly desires of the heart instead of that longing to be with the Lord. The evil thieves may know the weaknesses of man’s heart yet Jesus is urging us to be faithful: to listen to Him and hang on to His words. A heart that is fixed on Jesus allows no thieves to enter.
