Reference : John 2:13-25; Desire of Ages 154,155 [Chapter 16- In His Temple (part 1)]

The story of Jesus going up to Jerusalem for the Passover and seeing all the confusion serves as a warning for us not to get too tied up in anything that we miss the purpose. Everything we do is an act of worship as were the acts of devotion the people came to Jerusalem to perform. However, the people got lost, they wandered and the true purpose lost. Greed and extortion became part of the proceedings. Christ was disgusted and He overthrew the tables and chased the people  out of His Father’s house. He desires that we not misuse anything or anyone for our personal gain. Respect is due for what is God’s. He would want all of us to treat everything that is God’s as though they belong to a king, as they do.
