18 Mar Matthew 26:14-16

14 Then one of the twelve, named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What are you willing to give me to betray Him to you?” And they weighed out thirty pieces of silver to him. 16 From then on he began looking for a good opportunity to betray Jesus.

The Lord’s rebuke of the disciples triggered Judas’ response. Only Jesus knew the true character of Judas. His criticism of Mary sounded very spiritual, but he just wanted the perfume to be sold so that he would be able to use the money. We know that Judas later regretted betraying Jesus, but he could not stop what he had set into motion. Is Christ first in your life? A change may remove regrets.
