Bible Study & Devotional Day 63

🔴 The Face of Money

Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 10:24 What the wicked dread will overtake them; what the righteous desire will be granted. 


Up For Debate

Jesus remains ready, and we read how He continued to frustrate the religious teachers. Their desire to kill, steal and destroy because they lacked faith is evident. The spiritual teachers attempted to provoke Jesus to blaspheme, to trap Him in front of His followers. (Mark 12:14) Sarcastic compliments aside, Jesus knew their hearts.

For Profit

Mark 12:15-17 Jesus asked those trying to trap Him, whose image was on the denarius. The duality and depth of this question lead to a more profound understanding. If Caesar’s image was on the money, it belonged to him, and the people were to give the government what it was due through taxes. As believers, we accept that God created everything, and we as humans are made in His image. Genesis 1:27


We belong to God and give Him what He is due: reverence, devotion, worship, adoration, and obedient living. Jesus left the spiritual teachers confused because they could not argue with His point. Even though they failed to see His answer’s essence, we as His disciples understand the truth Jesus left for us.
