26th Mar Mark 12:1-27 Taking a break from politics

Lent thought for the day

It’s easy to get wound up by politics these days: Brexit, Trump, tax-dodging and referendums, there’s plenty to get you riled.

And there is nothing wrong with being politically engaged.

But Jesus’s famous response, “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and give to God what is God’s” reminds us that there’s more to life than politics.

There is a time for political debates, and there’s a time to switch of the TV and start making the world around us a better place.
