What are your 30 pieces of silver?

We love to read about Judas because his story gives us permission to castigate selling out Jesus, forgetting all the ways that we sell out Jesus all the time.

We sell out Jesus when our fear makes us cave into the expectations of people we don’t even like.

We sell out Jesus when our gluttony forgets the world’s poor and instead gobbles up calories we don’t need.

We sell out Jesus when our desires pursue experiences that we know don’t satisfy.

“O God who redeemed us at great cost, give us hearts of grateful humility that cannot be bought by fear, anger, greed or lust.”
