Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Give to Caesar what is due to Caesar and to God what is due to God” (Matthew 22:21).

Reflection: When asked whether taxes should be paid to Caesar, Jesus asked whose image and inscription was on the coin “Caesar’s,” came the answer. Jesus said the coin belongs to Caesar, for it bears Caesar’s image. What then belongs to God? – human beings, because they bear God’s image! The implication of the passage is that what belongs to God includes Caesar himself! Caesar must obey God.

Prayer: Lord, bless all those in civil authority, that they may obey your Divine and eternal law holding all life as sacred. Amen

    Well, I think that clears up a couple of issues for me personally. How about anyone else?
