A Thought: Don’t Assume-Check it out for yourself. Everyday we make ‘safe assumptions,’ based on experience, patterns of behavior, etc But, not all assumptions and perceptions are correct—you don’t necessarily trust your gut or your source. Either way, it’s healthier to check it out for yourself. It will render you peace as you resolve a situation on your own. Jesus found Himself being confronted all the time by authorities, both governing and religious. Jesus who had ‘all authority under heaven,’ resolved all perceptions about Him by answering with the Word and God’s Truth.
Good Idea. May this be a Truthful Tuesday for you!
Mark 12:13-17 Then the Pharisees challenged Him, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay a tax to Caesar, or not? Shall we pay or shall we not pay?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius to look at.” They brought one. And He said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” And they said to Him, “Caesar’s.” And Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at Him.”
