Who are we in this life?
Everyone wanted to be a hero. Good feeling, isn't it? And the one who helps! It gives self satisfaction! Makes our life meaningful.
I supposed no one would want to be the traitor. But how many times we had been a traitor? Once, twice or not at all?
How about the accuser? Guilty? Why? How many times we accused others of something? You know what! She did this and she did that and how can she do all of these things? Sounds familiar? We judge others and forgeting that we too are not perfect.
It made me think about these words when I was reading the story about Jesus where Judas betrayed him.
Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches and weapons. John 18: 2-3
Heres comes the traitor and the accusers!
Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, " Who is it that you want?" John 18:4
Jesus, the hero who offered his life for us!
Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. John 18:10
Peter, the helper ( he tought so)
How about we? Who do we want to be in this life? To God, to our family and friends?
My entry to " Floral Friday Fotos"
Lord, help us to be a hero in this life. Let us not be blinded by money, fame or fortune that can make us betray you. Give us the wisdon to handle pressure in our lives so that we will not dishonor your name. Let us see others with your eyes so that we won't judge them with our measuring stick. And let us be thankful for you had given your life to us!
