Well, yesterday was the day -- the day to pay all those taxes for which
you could not find enough deductions. Sorry.
Once a year we go to our county courthouse to pay our property tax.
Thankfully, it is only about one fifth of what it would be in PA, and we
have a larger lot and a much nicer house. The last time I paid them I
smiled at the girl and said, "I gladly pay this tax," and then I explained
why. She smiled back and said , "You wouldn't believe how many
people moan and complain about their taxes."
Some people just love to moan and complain -- it's a way of life, but it's
not much of a life. Many years ago there was a Lacey Quintet out of
Ohio that had in their repertoire, "The Grumbler's Song." We still have
it in their old songbook. It was meant to be amusing, but it was loaded
with tongue-in-cheek truth. "Grumble on a Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, grumble on a Thursday, too...." Have you ever heard it?
So, did you grumble about your taxes or were you grateful that you
could pay them? Psalm 119:108 (nlt) seems appropriate -- "Lord,
accept my grateful thanks, and teach me your laws." At first, that may
seem a strange grouping of thoughts within one verse, but Jesus did
give us the law to pay unto Caesar that which is his. Have you thanked
God lately for your income?
