“Not that he cared for the poor—he was a thief, and since he was in charge of the disciples’ money, he often stole some for himself.” (John 12:6, NLT).
On one occasion in Lazarus’ house, Mary his sister took an expensive perfume and anointed Jesus’ feet with it. Because it was very expensive Judas complained that the money was a year’s wage and should have been sold and given to the poor. He said so not because he cared for the poor. But because he was greedy and saw such an expensive gift as a waste on the master. What he saw was how much money he could have swiped if the perfume had indeed been sold.
It is very clear here that Judas had a weakness. And it was his love for money. Even being with Jesus for three and half years couldn’t solve his problem. He had heard Jesus preach, seen Him do miracles, he knew he was the son of God, but that didn’t save him. He still had to make a choice to determine his destiny.
As you know, Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. He didn’t start that day. The betrayal was just another opportunity to make bigger money. He had already been stealing regularly. Money was his weakness and he destroyed himself through that means.
What about you? What is your weakness? What are you addicted to? Your weakness has the capacity to abort your future. Destiny is calling and saying drop that habit so you can fulfil destiny. Do not become your own enemy. Going to church and being a worker does not save you. It starts with a decision only you can make. Great day my friend. #BeInspired.
