Numbers 22:39-23:26; Proverbs 20:1-21:11; James 4:13-5:20

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him. Mark 12:17

When asked about paying tax, the Lord took a penny and taught a principle. “Whose is this image and superscription?…Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” (Mark 12:16-17). When it comes to the government, we are to pay (Rom. 13:7), pray (1 Tim. 2:1), and obey (1 Peter 2:13). But they marveled when He added to render “to God the things that are God’s.” His image and inscription is on us! —Rex Trogdon

Only one life to offer—Take it, dear Lord, I pray,
Nothing from Thee withholding, Thy will I now obey,
Thou who hast freely given Thine all in all for me,
Claim this life for Thine own, to be used, my Saviour,
Ev’ry moment for Thee. —Avis B. Christiansen
