It’s a funny thing how religion, which should be a benefit to humanity, so often becomes a point of contention.

Jesus observed how, within the Judaism of his day, the true and proper worship of God had been hijacked for personal purposes. This angered him then, and we should take care that we don’t venture into those same waters now. How do we strive to keep the worship of God and the work of his Kingdom safe from human and worldly pursuits?
