Jesus’ response to the Pharisee’s attempted trap was priceless: ‘Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar; but give to God what belongs to God.’ We’re all good at giving to Caesar – pay taxes, cover our bills, fix the property, care for what we own. But how good are we at giving to God? Do we give Him our devotion and thanks: MASS. (In person, life-streamed)? Do we honor HIS WORD: help those in need? Do we show Him RESPECT: caring for His creation? Do we help carry the CROSS: willingly sacrifice for others?

Excuses are easy to make for what we don’t want to do. But with faith, we strive to make His presence felt through our lives.
