How many times in life do we look for proof that something is or isn’t true or right? In the Gospel today, a crowd is gathered around Jesus and Jesus criticizes them. He says “it (this generation) seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it.” He seems frustrated with the people. Jesus is in their midst, yet they fail to believe, to change their sinful ways, to understand that the “sign” they are seeking is HIM. God has given the people God’s only son. What greater sign or love for them and us can God give?
As I reflect on this Gospel, I think about how often I demand proof or a sign of God’s love according to how I think God should love me? Have I stopped to notice that this “sign” of God’s love can be right in front of me on a daily basis? Whether it’s through a family member or friend, school or work, or in creation, I pray that I am open to seeing all of the signs of God’s love in my life.
