Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St., Jude (Episcopal), asks, “What’s in your wallet?” In today’s Gospel, a question is asked that has some similarity to this one. Jesus is asked by the Pharisees whether or not they should pay their taxes. Of course, they were trying to trip him up and stop him from spreading his Word to the people. He smartly answered, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” In this way, he broke no laws and was able to continue his teachings.
