We are all looking for signs, aren’t we?

I laughed when I saw that photo, but it also resonated with me. I often want a sign that I’m on the right track. That I’m doing the right thing. That I’m making the best decision.

While God gave signs to Gideon, Hezekiah and Abraham’s servant, God doesn’t always give people signs. I have personally received very few. When the Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign he said, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” (Matthew 16:4). Though the Pharisees were testing Jesus in that passage, he implied in the preceding verses that they had been given signs but did not pay attention to them.
