December 29, Luke 20:19-26 Pay your taxes

I knew a man about 25 years ago who said that he liked paying taxes, in fact he thought there should be more and that government should provide more services. Personally I don't like paying taxes but I do like having roads to drive on and police and fire departments. Israel was in a unique position, they were never originally supposed to have a king and should not have been subject to Rome but because of their disobedience they were. These religious leaders were only concerned with trickery, another response could have been what did the prophet Samuel say when Israel first wanted a king? How many of Israel's own kings required taxes? When men choose to be governed by men there will be taxes. Being obedient to God, we accept that He is sovereign in all things and therefore we must submit to our earthly authorities.
