Conflict

Mark 12:17
Jesus said to them, “Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were utterly amazed at him.

How often do we attempt
to put words into God's mouth?
And how often do we interpret
Jesus' words to suit our purposes?
The truth is
that Jesus' way
of peace and justice
is not a road we take lightly
and not a path
we cab manipulate
to our own taste.
Following Christ
is wholehearted,
not a mish mash
of the bits we like best.
And sometimes that entails
showing respect
for those in authority
whether we are in agreement
or not.
Such is the way of the kingdom.

Prayer
God help us not to pick and choose but to be all in with our obedience to you, living peaceably with those who have authority over us.
