Paying Taxes

This from Matthew 22:15-22 (New International Version )

"Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.
They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians.
·    Rabbi, they said, we know that you are a man of integrity
·    and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
·    You aren't swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are.
·    Tell us then, what is your opinion?
·    Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not?
But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said,
·    You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me?
·    Show me the coin used for paying the tax.
They brought him a denarius, 20 and he asked them,
·    Whose image is this?
·    And whose inscription?
Caesar's, they replied.
Then he said to them,
·    So give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's.
When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away. "
So pay your taxes.
The next article will tell why it is good to pay taxes and how paying taxes is going to help you get more rich.
