Pay what you owe...
Verse of the day -
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Romans 13:6,7
For my guy who asked if I like paying taxes, I view it not as something to like, but as something I am duty bound to do.
As a Democrat and someone who doesn't trust Pres. Bush any more than I can hurl a Bradley Fighting Vehicle
, I think that God put him there for some reason. Maybe it was for the same reason that he invented the duck-billed platypus. That could just be my bias talking and I'm sure Big Daddy (God not Bush Sr.) had a much better reason than that but I can't see it. Point is, God put him there. He is God's servant, every bit as much it should be said, as much as Kerry would have been and Clinton was. They have no choice.
And that's another topic, choice. But perhaps that'll be Monday's scripture.
