The Tribute Money

 

Peter Paul Rubens

 

Prayer Thought Matthew 22: 15-22: Christians believe that earthly rulers and political regimes are called to be good stewards who reveal something of God’s beneficent power. But they only hold their power for a day. Whereas our ultimate concern should be with the eternal power of God’s love and his good plan for humankind and all creation.

All this we are reminded of, give thanks for, and celebrate when we come together - in ‘one heart and mind’ - to worship, to hear the guiding scriptures, and to pray.

While we serve the needs of our society and those of our families and friends, and our own needs too, we must allow nothing to compromise our commitment to love and serve God and his ‘kingdom’ above all else. This means, of course, that there are times when Christians have a duty boldly to insist that, while the ‘Caesars’ of this world - little and large - may be owed their due, we won’t stand by and watch silently if they exclude or step on any of God’s vulnerable ones or undermine his good purposes and loving plan for his people and creation. God bless
