April 15th is tax time, and that time is now. To some, it is a time of anger because they don’t have the money to pay the taxes. To others, it is a happy time because they will get back money that the government owes them. Either way, tax time is always about money going out and money coming in.
Not even Jesus Christ was spared the tax season because some of the officials questioned His followers about paying taxes, and Peter said that they would pay just like everybody else. Later on, Jesus instructed Peter to catch a fish and open its mouth and a coin would be found in the mouth of the fish, which Peter took and paid the tax man (Matthew 17:24-27).
So in following Jesus’ example, let us render to the government what belongs to them and to God, what is His (Matthew 22:16-21; Romans 13:7).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
