Jesus and Money
Through his actions and words, Christ had much to say about money while on earth. He spoke of "‘mammon,’ i”, it’s ts’ uses, abuses, and deceits. He pointed out the sacrifice of the widow who gave only a mite; she gave more than the rich who made a big show of their giving.
The money changers exploited the religious devotion of temple worshippers;, and in righteous anger, Christ turned over the tables and scattered the coins.
“Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’,, ’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves’.” (Matthew 21:12-13)
