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.
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]
