"What Next?" -- Not, "Why?"

Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them. Mark 14:10

Why? What led Judas, “one of the twelve,” to betray Jesus? Was it greed? Was it an attempt to get Jesus to fight back? Did he not believe anything of Jesus anymore? We will never know. Had he trusted Jesus; he would not have done it. Had he loved Jesus with all his heart; he would not have done it. Had he prayed to ask God’s guidance; he would not have done it. Perhaps we should just leave Judas alone and work in our lives to trust Jesus, to love him, and to pray for his guidance in all we do. We do better to focus on solutions than on explaining the problems. Have a blessed day!
