Going Deeper into Respect: Week 4/Day 3

Authority

Prayer of Praise:

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.

Psalm 100:4

Author

:one that originates or creates: source

:capitalized: GOD

:the writer of a literary work

:to be the author of: write


Author is the root word for authority. God as Creator is our ultimate authority and in His sovereignty writes our stories and the stories of those we love. The world’s story is His story.

Write a prayer or praise to God as the Author of life.

Day 3:

Read Matthew 17:24-27

What was Peter asked about? How did he respond?

The tax referred to was not a civil tax but a religious tax or temple tax.

What did Jesus explain about taxes? Why did He consent to pay the tax?

How did the unusual way in which He funded His and Peter’s tax payment respect the authority of His Father in heaven?
