29th Sunday - A (October 22, 2017)


What Belongs to God

“Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”

The question is, “What belongs to Caesar that does not belong to God?”

The fact is everything belongs to God, beginning with the life we have. 

Even Caesar’s power, in the eyes of faith, comes from God. 

While legitimate civil authorities have their roles in our lives, in the good running of a country and of the world, to them belongs nothing that does not come from God. 

Then, how does Jesus’ instruction guide or challenge me in how I set priorities of my life?
