14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
-Judas betrayed the Creator of the universe for 30 pieces of silver. It doesn’t seem like much money to betray God Himself. How much would it take to make you turn your back on God? $1,000? $1,000,000? The Bible teaches that a wicked person will transgress for a piece of bread (Proverbs 28:21). There may have been a time that Judas’ price would have been higher, but the second you decide to relax your standards, you’ll see them get lower and lower all of the time. If you would sacrifice your standing with the Lord for nothing less than $1,000,000 today, there will come a day that your price will be $1,000, and finally a day where you will sell out for mere scraps of bread.
