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 Ninevites, 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?

  • The Scribes and Pharisees could not accept the signs that Jesus performed right before their eyes. Just as they had rejected the message of John the Baptist, they also rejected Jesus as God’s Promised Messiah.


  • Jesus gave a rather stern warning to His generation when they demanded a sign from Him. He called them an evil generation. If Jesus was to appear amongst us today, what would Jesus say to us about our generation?


  • Do you thirst for Jesus? Ask the Lord to strengthen your faith and to give you the graces you need to follow Him more wholeheartedly by being more Christ-like  especially to the people we meet daily.
