A Message from Fr. George
As the Gospel unfolds, we have two groups of individuals who have come together for one purpose: to try to trap Jesus in his speech and thus find a way to get rid of him. The religiously conservative Pharisees and the much loathed loyalists to King Herod are unlikely allies… and so it appears that they believe Jesus to be a common threat. Isn’t it amazing how even then, as now, people will join together to promote their own cause?
Asking the question: “Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor or not?” this handful of men knew what would happen. If Jesus said “Yes”, then he would anger those who hated the Romans. If Jesus said “No”, then he would be seen as a threat to Rome. And so knowing their motives, Jesus turns the question on them.
Ultimately, this passage is not about paying taxes. Rather, it is about giving ourselves completely to God in a manner and fashion that is greater than paying taxes or giving an offering to the church. Financial stewardship is only part of our responsibility. Total stewardship demands that we live our lives in service to God… that we find joy in meeting the needs of the poor, of being generous and filled with thanks in our daily choices. We should ask ourselves how well do we do with what God has given to us? Are we generous with the spirit of forgiveness, compassion, understanding or acceptance? Do we fashion our lives in a manner that reflects ourselves as the very offering unto God?
These are difficult questions, but they represent yet another stage of discipleship. What will you give to God this week in all the areas of your life?
