Jesus was amazing. bad guys were always trying to trap Him by asking Him tricky questions. but His thoughts were not their thoughts, and His ways were not their ways. not only did He not get trapped by their questions, but He used those moments to teach everyone listening (including us!).
today they ask Him if they should pay taxes. He amazes them with His answer. give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and give to God what is God's.
and what is God's? well, Caesar's face is on the coin. and God's face is on us people. we are made in His image. so we should give our money to where it's owed.... and give our lives to God who made us.
God, please help me be generous with my money and my life, neither of which belong to me.
