Weekend Word: Tax

Friday, April 15, 2011

{Welcome to the weekend! I've chosen a word from my Bible's concordance, and am sharing a few of the related verses. I hope you will consider theses verses over the weekend, and perhaps spend time in the Word finding others. If you don't have a Bible handy, here is a great online version. Till Monday. . .}

Taxes


When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. "What do you think, Simon?" he asked. "From whom do you the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes - from their own sons or from others?"
"From others," Peter answered.
"Then the sons are exempt," Jesus said to him. "But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours." Matthew 17:25-27

(The Pharisees asked) "Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
(Jesus replied) "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." Matthew 22:17, 21

Give everyone what you owe him; If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Romans 13:7

On Wednesday, linking up with Internet Cafe Devotions.

  1. Respect and honor, even when it is owed...so hard under certain circumstances, with extended family.
