A Trick Question

A Trick Question

The spies sent to trick Jesus severely underestimated His insight and intuition. Jesus knew the motive behind their insincere flattery. He knew the significance of the question they posed. He also knew that others were listening, and He was aware of the politically charged nature of the question. His words ring with wisdom. Where do you need to seek and follow Jesus’ wisdom?

“Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” He saw through their duplicity and said to them, “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. 

He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”—Luke 20:22-25

Prayer: Jesus, I am convinced that You have the wisdom I need to find my way through life. You hear the question behind the question and understand all the implications of the situations I face. Give me the wisdom I need and the faith to trust Your guidance. In Your name, Amen.
