John 18

John 18:3
So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons.

What in the world is Judas doing? Earlier that evening Jesus was washing his feet. And now he is using those feet to lead an army against his friend. All for what? 30 pieces of silver. Beware of the love of money! It’ll take you to lengths you never thought possible. I doubt Judas even saw this day coming. We have no indication that any of this was premeditated. He probably just got swept up in the moment. Which is a warning to us. Set your love on money today, and tomorrow you could very well be leading an army against your closest of friends. Beware of the deceitfulness of riches.
