Luke 22:4-6


Luke 22:4-6  And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.  They were delighted and agreed to give him money.  He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.


Again and again I hear the temptations of this world.  From every side I hear the world, Satan, and my own sinful flesh telling me that values in life are measured by the amount of money I have, the car I drive, or the size or style of the home in which I live.  Lord Jesus, help me treasure you as the only enduring blessing.  Guard my heart from greed and the love of money.  Keep this darkness at bay so that your life may continue to shine in my heart and that my life may reflect your love. Amen.
