The Daily Scroll – Pay Your Taxes

What? Pay my taxes? Oh now you’ve gone to meddling in my business! What? The Apostle Paul is the one telling me in the Bible? Oops. Here’s what he wrote, 

“Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.” (Romans 6-7)

You know, most people don’t look at it that way. The Bible says that God sets people in authority over us and that we are to respect them and honor the law, for that is God’s will. Remember even Jesus said to render to Cesar what is Cesar’s and to God what is God’s. 

But the government wastes so much money you say? I agree but look at what the government does to help and bless people, as well as employ thousands of fellow citizens. It may not be perfect but pray that your contribution goes for the right usage. God sees and knows. He is the ultimate judge.
