Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. (Romans 13:1, NIV)
Taxes are one of our favorite complaints.
And we have a legitimate concern that they be used to maximum benefit.
But let’s never forget that taxes are one of the best financial bargains ever.
Imagine each of us having to purchase all the benefits of government for ourselves:
securing a full education for all our children,
protecting ourselves from enemies foreign and domestic,
and on and on.
Taxes are a great bargain.
They are one of the fruits of our union.
Government itself is a gift of God.
Do all you can to keep it strong and just.
