A Large Silver Coin

However, we don’t want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.
~ Matthew 17:27 [NLT]

Would you be surprised to find a silver coin in a mouth of a fish? Well, these “silver coins” come to us in many forms each day. While we may work to earn it on earth by “throwing in a line”, it is really a blessing from God to provide us with our daily bread. Let’s live and work each day with passion and leave the “tax payment” worries to God.
