"Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? See to that yourself!” -- Matthew 27:3-4
When I read this section the other day, I thought:
"When you sell out your Lord, when you sell Him for a few pieces of
silver, a few years of ‘pleasure,’ and the applause of others, the
buyers will always in the end turn to devour you – and mock you while
they do it.
The take home lesson? Sell your soul to the One who loves you enough to have paid for it with His blood. And then serve Him the rest of your days.
