Matthew 22:19-21 (NLT)
Here, show me the coin used for the tax.” When they handed him a Roman coin, he asked, “Whose picture and title are stamped on it?”
“Caesar’s,” they replied.
“Well, then,” he said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.”
If you come to our church you’ll find that we have discovered that God blesses us through our tithes and offerings. We read the passage and think, ‘yep, we’ve got to give our T&O (tithes and offerings) to God’. That’s absolutely correct. But at the same time God wants something more valuable. God wants you to give yourself to Him. How do you do that?
Giving yourself wholly to God is simple. You must just make your relationship with God your number one priority. Yeah, pay your taxes and do what you have to do as a world citizen. More importantly, talk to God all the time. Thank Him all the time for the things He is doing, and the things he’s going to do. Thank Him for what you have and thank Him for what’s coming. Talk with Hm all the time. Once you begin talking with Him He will talk with you. Now, you better watch out as God moves more in your life! Give to God what is His. That’s you!
