Judas

I love Postsecret.

Part of my weekly ritual is to stop off and catch up on the week’s updates.  It is a good past time. 

Every once in a while I find a card that I think about for a few days, maybe weeks.  But there has only ever been one that I have grabbed and saved. 

It is this one:

It is easy and simple.  Most of all, it is true.  Spending a lot of time learning about history, especially church history, gets you to thinking about who you would have been in the Story. 

No one says Jesus.

Sometimes I think I would be Peter.

Sometimes I think I would be more like Luke or Barnabas. 

But I need to realize sometimes that though I might share some qualities with those other guys, at heart I am Judas.  I can be sneaky, manipulative, shifty and lie.  And oh what wouldn’t I do for a little bit more money right now? 

These are just some thoughts for the day…
