    Jesus showed us at the cross that it’s not about fairness. It was not fair that Jesus died for our sins. Fairness would be us taking the punishment of death for our own sins, but Jesus took the punishment for us. Jesus suffered and died so that we can enter into the Kingdom of God and spend eternity with Him—that is grace. The Kingdom is overflowing with God’s amazing grace.
    Note: It is not about fairness.

    Father, I thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit that you give to all who follow Christ. Empower me by your Spirit today to live for Christ in a world that has gone mad.

I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
    Note: A powerful #prayer to #pray.

    Levi was a tax collector who, like the others, had heard about Jesus and the Kingdom that Jesus was revealing through His words and actions.

Levi would have not been welcomed by the people in the synagogue nor the home because of his occupation as a tax collector. He was welcomed by Jesus though, so Jesus went to where Levi worked.

    In Jesus’ day, Palestine under Roman oppression had a tax system which was unjust, very corrupt, and taking advantage of the poor so the wealthy empire of Rome, including its powerful war machine, could operate and its rulers live a very luxurious lifestyle. Now some would say that it is the same in our day, but stay with me for a minute. In Jesus’ day, the emperor of Rome would decide how much it would cost to not only run the government along with its conquering and occupying armies, but he would also calculate how much he and his family would need to live very luxuriously and far above...

    There are big debates today and much contention over taxes. There are those who favor cutting taxes for the wealthy so that money can trickle down. There are those who favor cutting taxes for the poor and middle class while raising taxes for the wealthy. There are those who favor a flat tax. There are those for big government and more taxes. There are those for small government and fewer taxes. Whatever your opinion may be on the current tax situation, please know that we are far better off than the tax-payers in Jesus’ day.
