In Luke 20:25 Jesus says, "Give to Caesar what belongs to him. But everything that belongs to God must be given to God."
Last night a German friend told me she wondered why we Americans trusted our government so much because she certainly did not trust hers. Good question. Today I thought about what the Lord told Jeremiah, "The human heart is most deceitful and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?" Apart from Jesus, none of us have any hope. This is why we need to put our trust in God. While walking to a restaurant, we shared Jesus with a few young men handing out flyers. One didn't know who Jesus was and showed great interest when I said, "Well, I have some really good news for you!" After hearing how God loved everything about him except his sin, he said he wanted a new heart so he would be nicer to people. We explained how he could pray and ask Jesus to forgive him of his sins which he said he would do later after work. BLESS THIS YOUNG MAN, LORD JESUS!
