Thursday, May 23rd: 2 Samuel 2:12 - 3:39, John 13: 1-30, Psalm 119: 1-16, Proverbs 15: 29-30 ~ Nathan

John 13:26-29 NIV
26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. [27] As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” [28] But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. [29]  Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor.

Seems obvious to me as I've read this many times, and also heard this story many times, that Judas is the guilty one. How can the others not see that?

Do I ignore, or not notice some sin around me? I truthfully know that it happens. I need to be more aware and work harder to root out or stay away from the sin in my life, and not take it casually.
