Sunday: 8:00 & 10:30am
Greetings St. Paul’s Family,
There’s an edge within each of our lessons this weekend. It seems logical to the person who asked Jesus, “Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not,” that there must be a tension between the people of God and earthly government. And if there is a tension, we should throw away the government and just obey God…right?? Or if we press it further, someone might even think God was wrong to institute government!! Hardly so. Jesus removes the tension by teaching us to give to both government and God what we respectfully owe each. He removes the tension.
In our lesson from Daniel we will apply that lesson and see how Daniel seeks to do just that - honor his Babylonian government and his Lord.
God bless you this weekend in the risen Jesus Christ!
