Advent Devotion December 9

Gospel Reading for the Day:

Matthew 22:15-22 (NIV)

Paying the Imperial Tax to Caesar

15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.16 They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are. 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax[a] to Caesar or not?”

18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, 20 and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”

21 “Caesar’s,” they replied.

Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.

Reflection 

Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

Following a work accident on December 9, 2009, our son was flown to the burn unit at UF Health Shands Hospital. For twenty-three days we prayed as the medical team performed surgeries to repair his body. But life was not to be and we left Shands without our son, without our future.

I was broken. I was angry. I was lost. But, ultimately, I was grateful. Over time, I learned and accepted that in order to live, gratefulness had to be my prevailing emotion regarding our son; grateful for the gift of his life and that we were able to cherish and love him here for twenty years. What an amazing gift and incredible blessing!

It was our son’s death that taught me we truly do not own anything in this world. We are but guardians and in being so we must choose how we live. We can live with God, or away from God; in the world or of the world, but we cannot live and live fully when we rest between the two.  

When we choose to walk a Christian life, we make a choice to worship God exclusive of all other gods or images and to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and strength. This means we put our faith in and release all things to God. The truth is, we control little of this life. When we are able to embrace that truth and give our all to God, we are able to live this life with a full and pure heart. We are able to live in a place of gratitude, a place of acceptance, a place of love.
