TUESDAY
In the scriptures, being anointed usually
meant you were a prophet or king of Israel.
Anointing was a sign that God had chosen you
for that job. But it was almost unheard of to call
a king from another country anointed. So why is
Cyrus given that title? Cyrus was king of Persia
when the Babylonians held the people of Israel
captive. God used him to defeat the Babylonians
and eventually bring the Israelites back to their
homes.
In our first reading, we hear the Lord’s
words to Cyrus about God’s plan for Israel. Notice that God is in charge: telling Cyrus what
God will do, making other kings run from him,
opening doors or gates that might have blocked
Cyrus’ armies—all for a king who doesn’t even
know God. Cyrus only knew the Persian gods.
That is why the reading says several times that
there is no God but the L
.
One thing this tells us is that God can
work through anyone, not just saints and religious. Any time someone does a good deed, God
is behind it. Just as God used Cyrus to free the
Israelites from their Babylonian captivity, God
can use governments to protect the poor, to help
rebuild after disasters, to defend freedom.
In that sense, we can understand what
Jesus says about payment to Caesar and to God.
Since everything belongs to God, that should be
our first allegiance. When a government does not
protect the weakest or the rights of the poor, it
should be accountable. But when God works
through governments, we can give some support
to them by such activities as voting, or paying
taxes. Let us ask God to work through us also,
helping us to proclaim that God alone is L
.
SCRIPTURE VERSE: “Repay to
Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God
what belongs to God.”— Matthew 22:21
