We learn today that Jesus rarely takes time to teach about the government. He is usually dealing with sins, heretical teaching, and the Kingdom of God. But, today we learn that Jesus is trying to be tricked into a treasonous plot. His answer shows both wisdom and an understanding of man’s heart. In answering the scribes and chief priest, Jesus shows He is Teacher, Lord, and King. He shows that the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. As you enjoy this morning’s sermon by Pastor Robb, enjoy Jesus; sage wisdom on not just paying taxes to the government, but also giving to God what is owed to Him.
To Pay or Not to Pay (Luke 20:19-26)
