Tobit 2: 9-14; Psalm 112 Mark 12: 13-17.

Made in God’s image.

“Is it permissible to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” was the dilemma placed before Jesus by his enemies. They handed him a denarius coin with the image and name of Tiberius, the Roman Emperor, on it. “Give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar—and to God, what belongs to God.” Jesus supports the existence of a lawful government. But, in the end, both state and human beings belong to God. I am made in God’s image, and I belong to God. I hope that I am a good citizen of my country, but my priority is citizenship in God’s kingdom.
