Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out those who were selling things, saying to them, “It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.” And every day he was teaching in the temple area. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile, were seeking to put him to death, but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose because all the people were hanging on his words.
Do you go to His Church? Are you prayerful when you are there or are you too busy and distracted to hang on His word? You may be the one who sets an example for someone who does not believe, or for someone seeking to destroy God’s kingdom. Hold onto His words and believe.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me when I become distracted during Mass and prayer time to keep my focus on you. May those who do not believe see that I am hanging on your very words. In Jesus’ holy and precious name, Amen.
How sweet to my taste is your promise!
