Jesus spent today teaching, reasoning and prophesying about the end times. On Tuesday, Judas Iscariot planned and agreed to betray Jesus (Matthew 26:14-16).
Judas heard Jesus’ teachings and saw his miracles, yet somehow he justified turning the innocent one over to the vengeful religious authorities who wanted to kill Jesus. Judas soon regretted this betrayal (Matthew 27:3-4).
What are you planning today that you will have remorse for on Friday? Or next week? Or any time in the future? Don’t hastily make wrong choices like Judas did, but consider carefully your decisions. There are days when following Jesus is unpopular and hard. Stick with Jesus on those difficult days. We have all betrayed Jesus. Don’t betray Him today. Don’t betray Him any other day.
