…”blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind, do this, don’t do that can’t you read the sign” as the Five Man Electrical Band sang in their hit song. What did Jesus say in today’s Gospel of Matthew 12:38-42 about signs…
Some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” He said to them in reply, “An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
The truth is, there are so many signs of God’s glory that we take for granted each day of how much He loves us. How about our first waking breath we are aware of each day. Without it, there would be no waking. Everything we are and we have are gifts from God. What more signs do we need to know that our God cares for us. HOW ABOUT THE SIGN OF THE CROSS? If that does not speak love to every Christian that Jesus Christ gave His life out of love for me, then most likely nothing will.
I was given a great sign this morning. The special day that my wife of 42 years was born. Though she does not do Facebook or read any of what I have to say, I tell the world today how much I love her and wish God’s peace upon her on her very special day!
