Today is April 15, the day when taxes are due to be paid to the federal government. That reminds me of the fellow who once exclaimed, “I’m trying to live within my means, but the government won’t let me!”
Sometimes we complain about paying taxes, but Jesus says, “…Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” (Matthew 22:21).
We understand that Jesus wants us to do the right thing by paying our taxes. However, did you catch the last part of that sentence? Maybe we should concentrate more on giving God what is due Him!
