Work Week Start
I woke up early today. About 3:30 am. I’m starting my work week. This is my week to drive in our carpool. I drive every third week. I also will drive one extra day because we have an overtime 10 hour day on Friday. I like overtime days from time to time. It just gets old when we have OT for a couple of months every other Friday. But I’m glad for the extra money and the boost in sales. 🙂
Today in my Bible study I read in Matthew about when the Pharisees were trying to trick Jesus in that they would ask him a question and He might answer wrongly. But He never did. Jesus would answer well or not answer them because He knew of their scheming. This time they asked Him if it was okay to pay taxes to Caesar. He had them show Him a coin. Then He asked whose inscription and image is on the coin. Then they told him Caesar’s. So Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.” When I read this passage I always think of taxes we pay as Americans. Even though we’re taxed in just about every way possible and hate it, we still need to pay them. At least in our form of government we can protest and voice our opinions and even change our taxes paying sometimes.
