Your mother is a ...

Has this ever happened to you? Have schoolmates ever said negative things about one of your parents? Do you remember someone saying something that hurts the image of your father or mother? I can remember some guys at school saying bad things about my mother. It made me furious. I was very angry with them.

Often people say you cannot be angry as a Christian. Christianity is a religion of peace. “Turning the other cheek to people when they hit you on the cheek.”

See this part of Jesus’ life.

Often people say you cannot be angry as a Christian. Christianity is a religion of peace. “Turning the other cheek to people when they hit you on the cheek.”

Jesus is coming into the house of his father, the temple. And he sees that it is not a place of prayer, but a marketplace. He is furious. It hurts his father. And he stands up for his father.

What Jesus shows in this story is that he was angry because the people ruined God’s idea about the temple. So you can be angry as a Christian, when you have a sort of holy discontentment.

In this story, Jesus also shows to the people what his authority is. Discover it yourself.
