We have done our taxes and sent them in. It is impossible to come out even. Either we owe or we get a refund. I’m not a fan of large refunds. I’d rather have my money during the year than let the government hold it for me. During the year we can invest the money and maybe make a little money from it. Then the government can get a little more money from us by taxing our little profit. It’s a vicious cycle. You would think they could word the questions and explanations in the tax forms better. They are convoluted and even confusing the way they are written. Anyway, I take comfort in knowing that this world, the way it is now, will not be my final home.
Jesus Himself said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s. The problem starts when church and state are not separate. Look at history. Religious leaders use the government to force their beliefs on other people, and governments think they can take the place of God.
God always gives a choice. It is better even in this world now to choose Him. Your relationship with Him now gives real peace. God has also let us know what will happen if we don’t accept His love and His Son, but He still lets us choose. It comes down to who you worship.
