The first line of last Sunday’s reading reminds us of Judas’s part in the Holy Week story, so let’s spend a moment pondering this. How many loyal employees have been in his place? No, we aren’t asked to turn our boss over to the authorities, but we may be asked to do other things. Asked or expected. Most successful employees have shared information, kept confidences, covered for the supervisor, and some have taken full responsibility for an error made by those above us. All loyal employees do what we are asked to do. Period. Maybe Judas did the same.
