Mark 14:10–11 (ESV)
Judas to Betray Jesus
10 Then Judas Iscariot,
who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.
certainly plays a part in Jesus death, the greed of Judas. The Lutheran Study Bible says : “Judas, one of the Twelve whom Jesus appointed, decides to betray Him to the authorities. Even Judas’s betrayal of Jesus plays an important role in
the plan of salvation, culminating in the cross and empty tomb. Simple association with Christians or a knowledge of Christ cannot save. Only faith in Jesus as Savior rescues from sin and death.”
O Lord, help me to never replace your love for me with greed for money. Money brings about many sins, help me to stay true to you. Let the faith you have given me and your love and provisions be all I need. May I be content with you,
