He just thought of it and out! he went about it.
Just like that? without one single struggle to overcome the thought. I really do not understand it. What exactly was he even thinking?
Maybe , just maybe if he had thought it through, weighed the pros and cons after such a long co-habitation with Jesus,
He could have being able to resist the devil and eventually save himself from being used as a bait for the golden fish.
But really, What was he thinking?
Did Jesus offend him? Or was he angry that such an expensive oil was lavished on Him? probably after the thought of what he could get out of the proceeds once it got to him; No! It couldn’t have been that. Perhaps he was so broke that the only way out he could think of was a merchandise of betrayal.
Hmmmmmmm! I really do seek to know his reasons
But whatever they maybe,was it justifiable? I mean, to what end?
Aside fulfilling scriptures, he could have still avoided being used, but, No! he gave in without a fight!
I guess he was weak-willed and just couldn’t resist the call of greed. And that goes to every believer. The devil plants the seed, the choice to water and grow it is absolutely yours to make.
Chose wisely or die foolishly!!!
Luke 14:10 (NIV)- Then Judas Iscariot, one out of the twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.
