  And whatever you ask in prayer you will receive if you have faith.

Matthew 21:22



"Not Just a Yes or No"

Dear Father,


After reading once again in the book of Mark about how the religious leaders tried to trap Jesus with a question about taxes I had to laugh. The thought of trying to "trap" Jesus, to out think Him was so absurd. But then while I was pondering the situation, my mind began to analyze the whole thing. They expected a yes or no answer to the question "is it right to pay taxes to Rome?" Either yes or no would have been trouble for Jesus. A yes would mean He supported Rome and turned the people against Him, a no would have been treason. But as would be suspected Jesus saw right through them and asked to see a coin. Then true to form He asked them a question; " Whose picture is on this coin?" Upon their answer that it was the emperor Jesus said; "then if it is his give it to him, but give unto God what is God's". Lord it is just like that today, help us to depend on the very words that You will give us when we are the middle of the battles we must fight. Help us to always turn to You for the answers we need and not just try to answer with a simple yes or a no.

In Jesus' name I pray,




"and they scratched their heads in amazement at His reply"


Mark 12:17b
