My eyes skimmed over scripture about paying taxes. Some people had questioned Jesus about taxes and He requests a coin. He asks whose likeness is on the coin? He then instructs them to give the coin to whom it belongs and to give to God what belongs to Him. I immediately thought of our kids and the picture comes to mind of holding each one as a newborn. I remember studying them and memorizing each precious detail. You want to see if they have your eyes or your husbands smile. As they grow, you see parts of your personality and struggles too, reflecting back to you in each one. Then we remember they belong to God and give them back again. And past my eyes and struggles, I see whose image they bear. What an honor to encourage more and more of His likeness every day.
