14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marveled at him.
Mark 12:14-17 KJV
We have an obligation to the world
To give unto the rulers what is theirs.
Whatever flag above us is unfurled,
Obey that government; give them their shares.
We can’t forsake this world while we are here,
And still employ the money of the land.
Rebel and soon officials will appear
Reminding us the debt we owe at hand.
So render unto Caesar what is his,
And render unto God what’s His as well.
If you think taxes are too high as is,
Then use the laws to change it where you dwell.
No matter what the levy is, just pay,
And give your heart to Christ without delay.
