In what ways large and small
do we betray God in our lives?
When we promise to do one thing
then do another; when we fail
to do what is right; when we
refuse to forgive, harden our hearts,
and know not compassion, like
Judas, we betray our God,
Who asks only that we live a life of love.
Thirty pieces of silver will not
buy a life or serenity and love.
We must look carefully at our
betrayals and ask for strength
to fulfill our promises, safe
in the knowledge of God’s Unfailing Grace.
