Love

Lk. 19:45-48 The full text here is "My house shall be a house of prayer of all people."  That is what Jesus was angry about--the money changers were not bothering the Jews==but the outsiders--for him his house is for all people. Yesterday was along day--cooking--and then serving. I have volunteers who often tell me how great it just be to have thankful and appreiciative people around-well lets see, one told me last night my food tasted like "shit", another, that "you never fix anything I like", for the most part they are thankful, and appreciative--I do this not for thanks but because I love God, and in loving God I love God's fellow creatures, pure and simple, it is not about what I get in return.
