290317 – Luke 20:19-26 (To whom?)

Doesn’t everything belong to God?

Shouldn’t all our money go to him then?

Yet, while everything belongs to God, not everything does.

At least not the way we see it.

God has full authority to take ownership over every cent, dollar, note, coin, on the earth – indeed all things were formed through Him.

Colossians 1:16

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

Yet, He has called us to render to authorities what is due them, in spite of how evil or destructive they might be. Not that we actively fund evil campaigns, but we respect the God appointed authority over our lands.

How does that translate into actual living, especially in a land where immoral laws are campaigned for and approved?
