Today's reading: John 2:13-25

When Jesus arrives at the temple in Jerusalem, things are amiss. The prominent thing happening at the temple, the house of God, is the selling of goods and the exchanging of money instead of the worship of God. Jesus is grieved and angered by what he sees and immediately takes corrective action.

"And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, 'Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade'" (vs. 15-16).

What does this account convey about the need to keep God first in all areas of life? What are those things (and we all have them) that can pull your focus off of God if you're not careful? If you're in need of some corrective action so that God is your first and primary focus, will you pray and ask God to forgive your wandering heart and help you get back on course? Tami

God is absolute love that is the message. He is the good wine and so we must serve it first. God gives his best first; this is a lesson in love. We must love the Lord with all our hearts, our minds our souls and love our neighbours as ourselves. Serve them good wine always; good wine is not for your best friends or family but everybody. Do good to all people.

Tami W, I like what Eglon has comment about God gives His best first and I believe, the lesson today says God wants us to put Him FIRST above our material or financial desires.
I am reminded of the verse," Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you".

Matt 6:33.
God is not impressed in what we have,He wants our heart yielded to Him.
