Day 316

Today’s Reading – Matthew 27 and Mark 15


When Judas, who betrayed Jesus, saw that Jesus was condemned to die, he felt deep regret. He returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, and said, “I did wrong because I betrayed an innocent man.” 

Matthew 27:2-4 CEB

 

Regret is a terrible thing.

Perhaps we have been a bit rough on Judas through the years.

Theologians have argued through the years that Judas hoped to insite a revolution – Jesus would be king! Instead Jesus is condemned to die and innocent man.

Regret sets in.

Don’t let hindsight set in . . . Do the right thing from the start . . . it really is the best way to avoid regret.

How do you know the right thing?

Jesus has given you all the instruction you need.

In case you forget, He has sent the Holy Spirit to remind you.

I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
