When it was evening, Jesus came with the twelve. And when they had taken their places and were eating, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.” Mark 14:17-18.
Can you imagine Jesus saying that to you? We’d all think, “No, not me!” The disciples were faithful followers of Jesus, there was no way one of them would betray him. We’d like to think we are this way as faithful Christians, but the reality is there are times in our lives where we betray Jesus and his teachings, maybe not as literal as Judas’ betrayal, but it still happens. When we know the right thing to do but do the opposite. When we see something happening we know is wrong but say nothing. There are things we do and don’t even realize. The challenge is to recognize them and change the way we react. This is always difficult with the influences around us but with God’s guidance, we can live like Jesus taught us to, every day.
Prayer: God, please guide me to do the right thing. I know I am not perfect, but even when I stray, lead me back to you. Amen
