Tax men came to Peter and asked, “Does your teacher pay taxes?”

Peter said, “Of course.” But as soon as they were in the house, Jesus confronted him. “Simon, what do you think? When a king levies taxes, who pays—his children or his subjects?” He answered, “His subjects.”

Jesus said, “Then the children get off free, right?

Jesus made a special point to Peter that the kings of this world don’t charge their own children taxes. There are certain advantages to being a relative of the one in power.

Same with God — His Children live in His kingdom for free, too.

Why point that out? Because receiving Christ changes a person from being one of God’s “subjects/servant” to one of God’s “children”

So then, you are no longer a slave but a child. And since you are his child, God will give you all that he has for his children. – Galatians 4:7 (Good News Bible)

If you are Christ’s come to God as his child not his servant; it will change your prayer life!
