Do you give to the poor? The Bible teaches you to do this. Do you pay your taxes? The state expects you to and the Bible supports this activity. Render unto Caesar. Do you see these as related activities? If you live in a country where government support for the poor is funded by taxes, you can claim that they are linked. Yet taxes are not donations, and compulsion can take the virtue out of giving, but it doesn’t have to. If you are called to be a cheerful giver in what you donate, would it make you feel better about paying taxes to know that some part of it goes to the poor? Don’t let your ministry to the poor be limited to this.
