And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was valued by them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord. Zechariah 11:12-13
In Matthew, we read that Judas betrayed Jesus to the Sanhedrin for thirty pieces of silver, fulfilling the prophecy of Zechariah.
Zechariah foretold that the Messiah’s price would be measured at a pittance: thirty pieces of silver.
Can we imagine valuing a human life in terms of silver? Unthinkable enough, but then this is no ordinary life.
It’s the life of God’s only Son.
What value do you place on His life? How do you express the value Jesus has for you?
Has a relationship with Him cost you anything?
The Father valued us very highly. The price He paid for our redemption was His most precious Son’s human life.
Perhaps we need to re-evaluate our evaluation of our Savior.
Reflect upon the Lord’s evaluation of you. And then, your evaluation of Him
