Render Unto Caesar

Whose likeness and inscription is this?” (Matt 22:20 NASB)

Perhaps you recognize this question.

This is how Jesus deals with a financial cliff.

This however was not the part that rocked my world.

Then He said this:

Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s (vs 21a)

Still not doing too much for me (I was kind of hoping He would set a precedent so we would never have to pay taxes – but He didn’t do that)

Finally I hit pay dirt:

and to God the things that are God’s.” (vs 21b)

This begs the big question – What belongs to God?

HMMM

Rewind –

Whose likeness and inscription is this? Been to the mirror lately? Whose likeness is that?

You are made in the likeness of God and you have the inscription of His word in your heart.

Render yourself to God today!

      Yeah - this one is a biggy for me too - a dear friend pointed this out to me a long time ago, but i was just pondering anew and thought it was red letter day worthy - actually - not sure if red letter day is worthy of it - (tee hee)

      Have a great New Years Eve. Corinne and I host a fun family night of games, snacks and worship in the New Year at the church - it is always fun.

      Thanks so much for your continual and faithful encouragement!
