Look around you and inside you. See and feel the sign you need today. It is the sign of God’s presence of hope, peace and love for you - Daily Bible Reflections February 16,2015



SEEKING SIGNS

“Why does this generation seek a sign?” – Mark 8:12

       Signs aren’t bad. We see directional signs all around to guide us. Just the other day, Valentine’s Day, we had signs and symbols of love everywhere. We read the “signs of the times” in our natural and moral environment, and we respond to it.
       We experience non-verbal signs expressed by our spouse, our children, our siblings and our friends. Someone who is suddenly quiet and not talking to anyone is a sign that this person is going through something. Skin rashes may be a physical sign of allergy or something more serious that needs attention.
           Signs are helpful.
       But in our Gospel today, the Pharisees who came forward and argued with Jesus asked for a sign from heaven to test Him.
       Now that’s a bad sign that should simply be ignored. Because signs from God, such as healing and miracles, are purely out of His grace and love for us — and not to prove Himself. As writer Stuart Chase says, “For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t, no proof is possible.”
       After all, God’s love for you, through His Son, Jesus, is His best sign ever. Alvin Barcelona (apb_ayo@yahoo.com)

Reflection: Look around you and inside you. See and feel the sign you need today. It is the sign of God’s presence of hope, peace and love for you.

Dear Lord, may I serve as Your sign to others too – that they may see, love and serve You more through Jesus, Your greatest sign. Amen.

St. Gilbert of Sempringham, pray for us.
