Lenten Devotion: Perfectly bad timing

Image result for Perfectly bad timingRead Matthew 26:6-16

Matthew writes that once Judas was promised a reward for betraying Jesus he “began looking for an opportune time.” Judas was on a mission and he was planning his strategy as to how and where he would turn Jesus over to authorities and collect his blood money. Jesus was also on a mission and for him timing was very important as well.

How do you see Jesus’ perfect timing in all the stories you know about his mercy and miracles? In the cross and resurrection? In your own life?

We often describe as “perfect timing” those places where things go well, but what about the “cross” opportunities today – the “bad” timing? Can you see God working his good purpose in them today also?
