My Gospel Reflections for MondayJuly 20: Matthew 19:38-42

My Reflections:
Majority of the scribes and the Pharisees were through and through against Jesus. They demand for a sign for what purpose? But Jesus knew them well; He knew the evil in their hearts.

We may not be like the scribes and the Pharisees who persecuted Jesus. But we are like them once in a while because sometimes we also demand for a sign from God. Especially when we are about to make major decisions we ask God for a sign.

For me, asking God for a sign is an indication of weak faith, come to think of it; why will we ask God for a sign if we have our full trust and faith in HIM?

Brother, I am an avid reader of your blogs...most of the time I love your reflections...but this time I may not agree that asking God for a sign is an indication of weak faith...isnt asking God for a sign is asking His guidance? for me, asking a sign (which I usually do, got a strong faith of course) means asking guidance for every decision or task I will do, and the result would be great, as always!...tnx and God bless us all!

Thank you very much for your comment and for being a reader of my blog. I appreciate it very much and I respect your opinion too.

I reflect on the gospel reading based on what I feel. Those who read it (including you)may agree or disagree and that's OK because God gives us different discernments/reflections when we read HIS words with all our hearts and minds.

Thank you again for your taking time. God bless you!
