Daily Bible Reading: Matthew 26:1 – 19
Verse of the Day: Matthew 26:14 – 15 – “Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, and said, What are ye willing to give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they weighed unto him thirty pieces of silver.”
How could one who was close to Jesus, who apparently was considered by the Disciples to be a person of integrity (he was allowed to be the treasurer), and was considered one of His specially selected followers (a Disciple) so callously seek to betray Jesus into the hands of His enemies?
Maybe, a better question we should be asking ourselves today is – how could I, one of His followers and family so easily betray and disobey Him? Before we cast the first stone at Judas, we need to examine our lives.
Judas betrayed Him and so did Simon Peter. And, when we are honest in our personal scrutiny, we are guilty also.
Prayer: Father, examine me, expose how I so easily disobey and betray my Savior. Amen.
