Giving God what is His

First Jesus is asked about paying taxes to Caesar than later He notes the gift a poor widow makes.

If to God what is God and to Caesar what is Caesar. The rich give to the temple out of their surplus while the widow gives out if her poverty.

Both gave back to God what was God, but only the widow gave to show dependence on God.

Giving back what is not ours should be easy, but we don’t always look at our wages as anyone else but ours. Even that which we say is God. Our wages may come from Caesar so paying the tax would giving some back, but didn’t the widow put in coins that had Caesars face?
