Daily Word Of God
The Pharisees came up and started a discussion with Jesus; they demanded of him a sign from heaven, to test him.
And with a sigh that came straight from the heart he said, ‘Why does this generation demand a sign? I tell you solemnly, no sign shall be given to this generation.’ And leaving them again, re-embarked and went away to the opposite shore.
Today's Pointers on God's Word
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?
- Like the Pharisees in today’s Gospel, we too often ask of God signs to re-assure our faith in Him. As though it is not enough to trust in a loving heavenly Father, we look for more assurances and at times, guarantees.
- Jesus is the eternal Sign from God; we do not need other signs or guarantees. Through Jesus, we will never be lost and lonely.
- Yet, how often have we failed to look to Jesus for our needs and direction in life? Pray for a deeper faith in the Lord.
