Pay It Forward

Mark 12:17
So Jesus said to them, “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”

So…just what does belong to God? Everything! Everything we are…our lives…our beingall of it belongs to God. We could do nothing without each breath God gives…and all the gifts and talents God has planted in us. God even gives us eternal life! It’s all gift. Amazing…mind-boggling! What seems “beyond belief” becomes believable when you follow Jesus. How do you repay such extravagant, unearned, unconditional love poured out to each of us? You return to God what belongs to God in the way you live your life, the choices you make, the causes you support, the things you buy, the way you vote, the way you treat others, the way you live each precious moment.
