Pay up

The systems of this world are always interested in our money. We have to pay for stuff we buy, pay taxes when we work, and pay for all the activities we do. If you haven’t got money, you will find it hard to belong.

The enemies of God asked Jesus if they should pay their taxes. It was a clever question to try to trap Jesus into saying the wrong thing. Instead, Jesus pointed the question back to them and challenged them in a way that only He can do.

Jesus asked for a coin (He didn’t have one!!) He showed the people the picture on it. Who is this? Caesar? Then give to Caesar what is Caesars, and to God what is Gods. What is God’s- we are, He made us and gives us life, wether we recognise it or not.

This world asks for your cash- God asks for your whole self…

When we give ourselves to Him, we loose all, and yet gain everything. To give up or lives to Him, means that we get so much more in return….

Give to this world its dues, but not your life and soul.

Give God what is his anyway, and we will find everything.
