Psalm 31.9-14, Exodus 2.1-22, Mark 14.32-52 - Lectionary for 4/11/11

Today's readings are Psalm 31.9-14, Exodus 2.1-22, and Mark 14.32-52.

The Bible is largely a story of betrayal. Sinful man acts in accord with his nature and sins. In our sin we betray our fellow man, we betray even Jesus, the Son of God. And while he is betrayed to death, see that through God's mercy, sinful people like Moses or like the disciples who won't remain awake and pray with Jesus are protected. Even those who come to arrest the true and living God are protected. May the Lord continue to have mercy on us, the people who would betray our Lord and our God.
