Abundant Life

What if love was always the main motivator of our actions?

Mark 12:17

So Jesus said to them, “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”

+++

So…what really belonged to Caesar?

What truly belongs to any of us that isn’t given by the Giver of all?

All material things will eventually disintegrate.

But Christians (and many spiritual people) believe that our souls…our spirits…will go on.

Death does not have the final say.

So in reality…everything belongs to God.

If it weren’t for the Creator…nothing would exist.

I’m sure Jesus would have been for contributing to earthly governments what they need to maintain the common good. But how can we repay God for all we’ve been given?

How can I repay God for my life and eternal life to come?

Our loving Creator has given us everything. Receive this gratuitous gift of grace.

What shall we give in return?
