GraceNotes Lenten ReflectionsDays before His crucifixion some people tried to trap Jesus about paying taxes to Caesar. Jesus responded to them, “If Caesar wants his stuff give back to him, you should, it’s monogrammed with his face on it, but give to God what’s God’s. That’s the image we were made in.” The brilliance of our Lord’s response was that He accomplishes His purpose here without scolding anyone for their fears or even obeying the pressures of Rome to pay their taxes. Jesus showed love even when He was confronted by people who didn’t seem to deserve it, He gave them grace.
