Scrolling through Instagram I have seen the same quote over and over again…
“Judas ate too..”
Reading this quote helps us understand the mercy Jesus demonstrated to the one who had deceived Him. Jesus allowed Judas to eat with Him knowing he would be disloyal to Him.
Reading this quote also made me question a couple of things…
Should we allow people that betray us to be in our circle?
Should would treat them as if nothing happened?
In the story of the Last Supper Jesus did an interesting thing to me. Jesus announced that someone will betray Him. Jesus put light on the situation.
As Christians, we should love everyone and show kindness to everyone, but should also be aware of people’s intention in our lives.
Another thing that I loved that Jesus did was let the over disciples know that someone is deceiving Him.
Those that we are closest with and vulnerable with are the ones we should warn when someone does not have good intentions.
We can love our enemies while protecting ourselves and the ones we love.
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.” Matthew 18:15-16

Great book to read : The Powerful Purpose of an Introvert
I love when scripture takes us deeper and brings forth ponderings. I actually just had a discussion about this sort of thing last night with the youth of our church. We are to love everyone, but some we need love at arms length. We dont have to let everyone in but we do need to love. The last supper is such a beautiful example isnt it 🙂
Yes it is!
