Why should I give…tax….property

Why should I give…our tax…our property

Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s

Mark 12:17

The government

It’s Inefficient

——————

It takes ten people

To do

One man’s work

—————

It’s corrupt

They earn their cuts

On public money spent

—————

It wastes

Digging a perfectly

Good road

And relaying it

—————-

The politicians

They use our money

To give sops

To reelect themselves

———-

That’s all true

————-

It’s not about them

It’s about us

It’s about honesty

—————

If all

Stopped

Paying

Their taxes

Would there be money

For development

—————

Are we making

An excuse

Because

We do not

Want to part

With our money

—————

Rules

They are meant

To be obeyed

—————

We don’t

Because

We know

We can get away

————-

It’s difficult

Yes

To walk

The narrow path

—————

When we buy or sell

Our property

In black

To avoid taxes

—————

Are we doing

What Jesus said

—————

Give to Caesar

What belongs

To Caesar

————-

That’s black and white

No room for debate

————

Do we stop

To consider

That God

Will bless us

With more

For our honestly

Our Evangelisation

————

Those Christians

They’re white people

They say

No underhand dealings

—————-

The Municipality

They ask for our land

—————

Our property

For road expansion

They do not ask

The others

————

They slapped

The notice

On us

They did not

Slap the others

————

Why must we give

It’s unfair

———-

Jesus said

If someone slaps you

On one cheek

Offer the other

—————

If it’s for a greater good

To reduce the traffic

To reduce the pollution

Of vehicles in a jam

————

We must give

It’s for the good

————-

We are givers

We must not look

At the others

Or we will be

The same as they

————

Giving is Catholic

Giving is Christian

Giving is Humane

———-

By Jyothsna DSouza

I’m at home
With my children
With plenty of time
To read, teach, and muse

I believe if you have
The capacity
To do good
And others
They confirm
It is good
If it’s important
For many,
Not one
One must persist
To the end,
Till all one’s
Resources
Are exhausted

Man lives on hope
