Day 4: Pray for the Homeless – Ora por las personas desamparadas

Betrayed – Traicionad@ (Mark 14:18)

“While they were at the table eating, Jesus said, “I can guarantee this truth: One of you is going to betray me, one who is eating with me!” (GW)

Betrayal can be such an emotional, spiritually painful, demoralizing, hurtful experience. Healing from betrayal can take a long, long time. While it takes a long journey, recovery, healing, reconnection and growth can happen if we work hard to survive the pain. I love what Hamilton says “but most often what is require is grace.”

The experience expressed in the Gospel of Mark is an interesting one. Jesus knew he was going to be betrayed, yet he moved on to allow for intimacy with his friends, including Peter and Judas, one denied him and the other betrayed him with a kiss!

My God, I really need your grace to understand how to forgive those that have betrayed me and to allow the experience to guide me to grow and trust you more. Amen!

“Ya sentados a la mesa, y mientras comían, Jesús dijo: ‘De cierto les digo que uno de ustedes me va a traicionar. Ahora está comiendo conmigo’.”(RVC)

La traición puede ser una expeiencia emocional que produce dolor espiritual, demoralizacion y angustia. Sanidad de esta experiencia puede tomar un largo tiempo. Mientras esta jornada toma un largo tiempo, la recuperación, sanidad, la habilidad de reconnectar con otros y crecer requiere trabajo arduo para poder sobrevivir el dolor. Me gusta lo que Hamilton dice “frequentemente lo que se requiere es la gracia [de Dios].

Encuentro la experiencia presentada en el libro de Marcos muy interesante. Jesus sabía que sería traicionado sinembargo, permaneció en la cena con sus amigos, incluyendo a Pedro y Judas, uno lo negaria y el otro lo traicionaria con un beso!
