One last thing to bring up is that it said "when they were out of doors" they had to face the Temple. As a Christian, it is often very easy to live a good life "inside", that is, around your family or your pastors, or even inside church. The real challenge is keeping God your focus when you're "outside" in the world.
II Corinthians 4:18 -- So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Psalm 141:8 -- But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD;
in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Psalm 25:15 -- My eyes are ever on the LORD,
for only he will release my feet from the snare.
Hebrews 12:1-2 -- Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
