Have you voted yet? In today’s Gospel (Matthew 22:15-21) Jesus does not tell us who to vote for, but He does indicate important principles that should guide our participation in the political process. In escaping a trap set by Pharisees and Herodians, Jesus wants His hearers to recall they are made in God’s image. In doing this He restores dignity to people who were oppressed by Rome and reminds them they belong to God and are to build up God’s Kingdom. These are truths we should remember when we vote.
