“Tell us, then, what is your opinion: Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?”
- Matthew 22:17
Like Jesus in today’s gospel, we have moments in our life wherein we are place in a predicament. It is an inevitable part of our daily life that we must face courageously. And in today’s gospel, Jesus would like to remind us to choose wisely and to act courageously on the consequence of that choice.
We have the freedom to choose but we are not free to the consequence of that choice. Choosing the wrong thing will lead you to more difficult predicament while choosing nothing will lead you nowhere.
Father, grant us your grace to choose what You want for our lives. Give us Your wisdom and strength whenever we are caught in a predicament in our life. Amen.
