Isaiah 50:4-9; Psalm 69; Matthew 26:14-25


We can probably recall those feelings of devastation when we were first betrayed. It may have happened at primary school among those in and out of the friendship circle. Betrayal always hurts no matter how old we are. Our week today brings us to the moment of betrayal and invites us to relate to this in our experience. The gift of Jesus for us all is beyond comprehension. Yet, for a few silver pieces, Jesus is brought to an excruciating and shaming death. Can we hold in our hearts the sacredness of relationship and refrain from superficial trade-offs? Recall those whom we feel have betrayed us, and those whom we have betrayed for some personal ‘trade-off’. Be with Jesus.
