Luke 12:54-56

Luk 12:54 Jesus also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A rainstorm is coming,’ and it does.
Luk 12:55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and there is.
Luk 12:56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky, but how can you not know how to interpret the moment you are in?

significant signs

A few months ago, there were  major earthquakes in  New Zealand. Thankfully, there were only few deaths, but there was major damage and disruption. The next day, news broadcasts covered the tragedy in detail, highlighting the many ways people were trying to support the victims, and help the communities influenced by the disaster to recover.

Even the weather portion of the news focused on how the high winds and rain might hinder the rescue efforts. The meteorologists could accurately predict the weather patterns, but no one knew precisely when the quake was going to happen.

Jesus was pointing out that the generation he spoke to was in a major moment of decision, and most of them would miss the opportunity to join his kingdom, and save their lives for eternity. The signs were all around them, but they were ignorant of them.

LORD, give us eyes to see the things that really matter.
