“Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God,” Jesus says. (Matthew 22:21) A coin became a prop in this story and it bore the image of Caesar. So, in a way, it belonged to Caesar. The question then becomes, what bears the image of God? Well, according to Genesis 1:26, we do! Imagine what the world might be like if we all gave to God what belonged to God – gave ourselves without reservation. Scripture is full of the miraculous ways God takes what we give and turns into something more than we could imagine. Remember the two fish and five loaves? Remember one human death on a cross? What if you gave to God what belonged to God?
