“Here is one who is more than Jonah…here is one who is more than Solomon.”
The contemporaries of Jesus did not know how to recognize the love of God incarnate in Jesus. They asked for signs to see in Jesus that love of God made flesh. They were unable to see God’s love in the deeds and words of Jesus.
We are immersed in God’s love without realizing it. With a little thought we can see signs of God’s love continually and everywhere. We can appreciate signs of his goodness, his mercy, his love, his care, his patience, his forgiveness.
As long as we are attentive, we can feel and sense the presence of God at our side. But it is possible that the senses of the spirit are dulled and we do not know how to grasp all these signs as happened to the contemporaries of Jesus, those scribes and Pharisees who, blind to the deeds and words of Jesus, asked for signs and proofs.
Ask the Holy Spirit today to revive in you the senses of your spirit with which you can appreciate and know how to respond to so many manifestations of the presence of God’s love in you and in all creatures.
