Daily reflections: Monday: February 16/15


Gospel Mark 8:11... by is way of life and storytelling Jesus was proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God and the people of his day. It was his hope and prayer that people would come to accept and believe his story and make it their own and make their life based on a story that Jesus was telling. However, just as in our day people say seeing is believing so it was then, and they said to Jesus, give us a sign from heaven and we will belief. This rating shows that Jesus was very frustrated with the questioning by the Pharisees and he said to them, “why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I tell you, no sign will be given to this generation”. Jesus refused to be manipulated by the religious authorities and bend to their will. Jesus have enough integrity and self confidence and the truthfullness of his message that he would not play their game of giving them some miraculous sign.


Reflection: did you ever wonder why it is you believe?


Prayer: Jesus, your trusted in your message and the grace of God to touch the heart of your listeners hear so they might believe your word. I pray today, that the grace of God will touch my heart and so that I might fall in love with the Word and fashioned a relationship with God that is life-giving and life transforming for me. Amen
