Daily Word Of God

Luke 11:29-32

The crowds got even bigger and Jesus addressed them, ‘This is a wicked generation; it is asking for a sign. The only sign it will be given is the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the Nineveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation.

‘On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will rise up with the men of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here.

‘On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation and condemn it, because when Jonah preached they repented; and there is something greater than Jonah here.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus sternly admonished the crowd when they asked Him for signs to prove that He is the Messiah. 


  • There is so much unrest and bloodshed in the world today. It saddens Jesus to see people, corrupted by greed, clamouring for power and money, the voiceless of society, the unloved and those denied of human dignity.


  • Ask Jesus to help us conquer our sinful ways and do what is pleasing to Pray also that more will come to believe and accept Him as the  Messiah.
