Matthew 12:38-39. Sign Requested 27 Apr 2023

Mat 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees spoke up.
'Master,' they said, 'we should like to see a sign from you.'
39 He replied, 'It is an evil and unfaithful generation that asks for a sign!
The only sign it will be given is the sign of the prophet Jonah.

The Pharisees and scribes just had observed Jesus healing a blind and dumb demoniac. They criticize Jesus for doing that on a Sabbath and by Beelzebub. And now - assuming it is still Sabbath - they call him 'master' and ask for another sign.

When I am honest, I need to question myself. Do I recognize the miracles of Jesus in my time? I may be guilty of accusing Jesus for doing nothing in our chaotic time. What good am I doing myself in this time?


Jesus, please heal me from immobility where action is required.
