** When we portray Judas as some tragic individual, we naturally feel pity for him. But when we seem him as the Gospels do as a thief, as one who descried the devotion of Mary of Bethany as one who was avaricious, greedy and would sell His supposed friend in a heart beat, then our pity towards Judas is lacking. What an ugly character how could anyone love this man? Yet Christ did love Him. Our dear Lord did wash the feet of Judas and even when that blistering, hateful kiss was given to the Master, Jesus looked at Judas and called him FRIEND.**
Something for all of us to think about.
He washed the feet of the one who betrayed, of the one who thrice denied, and the ten who simply “forsook him and fled”.
“Having loved those who were with him, HE LOVED THEM TO THE END...”
Wow that is an awesome thought - thank-you
