Pay the Taxes or Pay the Rent?

You know and I know that taxes are way too high; and, so is the national debt.  I don't debate that.  I do not, however, get angry or upset about paying our taxes.  Why?  

  • I see paying our taxes a little differently.  
  • I see paying our federal taxes as paying rent to live in the most wonderful country in the world.  
  • Rent to have freedom like nowhere else.  
  • Freedom to make choices that contradict popular opinion.  
  • Freedom to worship my God and my Lord Jesus Christ in the way I choose.  
  • Sold out to Jesus and not hiding it...that's worth the price in itself.
