Man truthful know us all we must admit

Gospel of Mark Ch 12 v- 13 thru 17

13 They sent some Pharisees and Herodians to him to ensnare him in his speech. 14 They came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion. You do not regard a person’s status but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not? Should we pay or should we not pay?” 15 Knowing their hypocrisy he said to them, “Why are you testing me? Bring me a denarius to look at.” 16 They brought one to him and he said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They replied to him, “Caesar’s.” 17 So Jesus said to them, “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” They were utterly amazed at him.

Give to God what belongs to God but don’t forget to pay your taxes. I think Jesus surprised everybody that day stating repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God. They thought he was going to deny Caesar but they proved themselves wrong. Jesus understood the need for those taking care of the country as a whole are expected to receive their share to help protect us. Isn’t that what it’s all about being taxed to pay for the protection that keeps us safe each and every day. Whether they wanted to believe it or not Ceaser was protecting them as much as he was oppressing them at the same time. Jesus was there to free them from this oppression a freedom that came from admitting how to live forgiven and redeemed. We search each day for our freedom to travel and experience what God has ordained and this is by living the truth of God first in all your decisions. This will never go away. Salvation! Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty we pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. Day 9 We pray for our niece Brittany who is a mother of four and 33 years old who has brain cancer stage four. We pray for Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

I am a poet obedient to Christ,

10-21-2022 Mark’s Gospel Ch 12 v-1317

**Man truthful know us all we must admit**

Herodians and Pharisees sent

Speech His ensnare their fit

Questions they began to circumvent

Man truthful know us all we must admit

Opinion of anyone you do not consent

Status concerns you not in the bit

Truth accordance in God’s Way no one can prevent

Caesar tax should it be paid or do we vent

Hypocrisy known by Him

Me testing why in sin

Look at denarius to begin

Inscription and image you offend

Whose image is this

Replying Caesar they would insist

Repay Caesar what belongs to Caesar do not resist

God’s belongings give to God convict

Him they amazed utterly they had to admit
