Mt 12:38-42

No matter what Jesus has done, the Pharisees and scribes want more. They ask for signs, proof of his identity. Jesus knows there is nothing he can do that will convince them because their hearts are not open. He tells there will be no sign given.

I look for signs all the time. You surprise me by placing them in the ordinary. Thank you for blessing me with being able to recognize them.
