Re: Verse reading – Luke 20:1-8, 20-26 (day three)
“Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”  Jesus refused to answer the question, but not because he was attempting to avoid a trap.  He refused to answer the question because it was not his question to answer.  It was the interrogator’s question to answer.  It’s your question to answer.  It’s my question to answer.  And therein lies the reason for astonishment at the statement Jesus made: God allows you to have say over resources.  Therefore, he will not answer your question, but there’s coming a day when you will answer his.
