July 31, Today’s Thought-Render Unto God

july2212 duplication 002My heart yearns to walk in His paths,
according to His way marks.

Good Morning

Matthew 22:15-22

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel
how they might entangle him in his talk.
And they sent out unto him their
disciples with the Herodians, saying,
Master, we know that thou art true,
and teachest the way of God in truth,
neither carest thou for any man:
for thou regardest not the person of men.
Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou?
Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said,
Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
Shew me the tribute money.
And they brought unto him a penny.
And he saith unto them,
Whose is this image and superscription?
They say unto him, Caesar’s.
Then saith he unto them,
Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s;
and unto God the things that are God’s.
When they had heard these words, they marvelled,
and left him, and went their way.

Render unto God the things that are God’s

What things of God do I possess?
The heart, soul, mind, and strength
Praise and thanksgiving
Time and Talents

1. To submit or present, as for consideration, approval, or payment: render a bill.

Proverbs 3:27
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

Meditating, am I rendering to God all He desires and deserves?
Or am I withholding a part?
With my payers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. This is a great post Leslie and reminds me “our gifts are from God, what we do with them is our gift to God.” 🙂

    • Exactly – ‘our gifts are from God’ we are not our own we are bought with a price.
