Today there is much fuss about taxes. I pay my taxes, but I’m no tax expert nor am I an economist with an opinion on what tax structure is best for people and the economy. One thing I do know is that I would rather be paying taxes today than in Jesus’ day.
In Jesus’ day there was much fuss about taxes also, but Christ did not get involved in the debate. One thing He did do was go out of His way to befriend the tax collectors even though the taxes they imposed were oppressive and unjust.
