Wednesday April 12th Matthew 27 : 6-10
The chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money". After conferring together, they used them to buy the potter's field as a place to bury foreigners. For this reason that field has been called The Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel".
We do something that is very wrong and then, when faced with what we have done, we try to make a virtue of the situation by a subsequent apparently generous action. This however does not wipe away the original sin. By doing a seemingly benevolent action, we attempt to deflect others from seeing what has really happened. But God knows all and only through prayer can we be truly forgiven.
Lord as we study and reflect on the sacrifice Jesus made for us may we look back on our own sins and the consequences of our actions and pray for the only true forgiveness through You.
