Read Matthew 26:15. How much is a betrayal of God worth? How much did Judas receive? From whom did he receive it? Ponder that for a moment. The religious leaders gave Judas ‘blood money’ to betray the Lord our God. Why do you think they did this? (see John 12:10-11; Matthew 13:13). Pride is a dangerous thing. One commentator says that the 30 pieces of silver would be a little over $200 today; but in Jesus’ day, it was the cost of a slave. What does that tell you about their estimation of Messiah? This was an insulting number. Spend time today thinking about the worth of Jesus to you. Pray to Him about that.
