Holy Week: Monday
When Jesus came closer and could see Jerusalem, he cried and said:
It is too bad that today your people don’t know what will bring them peace! Now it is hidden from them. Jerusalem, the time will come when your enemies will build walls around you to attack you. Armies will surround you and close in on you from every side. They will level you to the ground and kill your people. Not one stone in your buildings will be left on top of another. This will happen because you did not see that God had come to save you.
When Jesus entered the temple, he started chasing out the people who were selling things. He told them, “The Scriptures say, ‘My house should be a place of worship.’ But you have made it a place where robbers hide!”
• Luke 19:41-46
What are you placing your ultimate hope in? How does Jesus' actions make you feel? What would it mean to you if Jesus upended your misplaced security? What do you think he is using that experience for?
