Thursday of Passion Week is known as the “Day of Treachery”. Treachery is the willful betrayal of trust. Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Peter, Jesus’ right hand man, disowned Him 3 times and claimed he “didn’t even know the man”. And the rest of the disciples turned their backs on Jesus and ran scared with their tails between their legs.
If trust be told, we have all betrayed God at some point in our lives.
Application for today’s reading (Matthew 26:1-27:10):
- Ask forgiveness for times you have betrayed God
- Pray for opportunities to stand up for Christ
