He [Jesus] said, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.” – Matthew 22:21 (NLT)
The Pharisees tried to trick Jesus into saying something that would brand Him an enemy of the Roman state. Jesus didn’t fall for it. Not only did this simple response confound His critics, it laid the clear foundation for our stewardship for all time. He paid the ultimate price for our sin. He asks only a little from us for His kingdom.
