Love is the answer. Do to others as you would have them do to you. Stupid is as stupid does. Ever notice how a profound or witty phrase loses its oomph after a while? Familiarity weakens its power. Jesusí responses to his critics can fall into this category, as many of them have been absorbed into our collective consciousness over the last two millennia. Take a minute though, for a fresh look at Matthew 22:15-22.
From my heart to yours
Tax time is over for most of us in the USA, and now we can enjoy the spring weather. I hope your tax obligations have not caused you too much stress this year. We had quite a time at our house, with new ďsmall businessĒ wrinkles to figure out, but itís done now. I am glad to have that distraction gone, because other distractions are lining up, waiting impatiently for my attention! Itís a continual struggle to keep my eyes on the face of Jesus, but so rewarding when I can manage it. Have a blessed week.
Serving our sweet Savior,
LeeAnn Bonds, Bible Basics Editor
