The crazy things we do

The high priests picked up the silver pieces, but then didn’t know what to do with them. “It wouldn’t be right to give this—a payment for murder!—as an offering in the Temple.” - Matthew 27 v 6

Reading this confirms how warped our human mind can be. It's OK to pay money to get Jesus murdered but it wasn't ok then to put that same money in the offering.

They killed the Son of God and were now having a committee meeting to discuss what was the right thing to do with the blood money. Yet no one seemed to recognise the craziness of their discussions.

Maybe that's why very often in church we spend so much time discussing and arguing about little stuff so it means we don't have to confront ourselves with our own lack of obedience.
