Jesus quotes often overlooked, here reconsidered:

He said:

~  ” Isn’t it written in the scriptures that ‘my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples?’ But you are making it a robbers’s den.”

Consider this: What if we applied his admonition to the world, generally, not just the “house of God” or religious institutions?

~  ” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me . . . to set free those who are oppressed.”

Think about it: Are you oppressed? If so, in what way? Or, are you, perhaps, an oppressor?

~  ” The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Contemplate: Do you know who, or what, is this Spirit? Or are you clueless? Is the answer just, for you, “blowin’ in the wind?”

~  ” To the person who overcomes . . . I will give a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but the one who receives it.”

Meditate: Would you want a new identity, or are content with the one you’ve got now?
