Today’s Readings — BREAK & Mark 8:11-13

Seeking signs. It’s been our way from the beginning. Humans like signs and the people of Jesus’ day were no different. The problem with sign-seeking is that it points to a life of unbelief. Sign-seeking is an endless game of moving the goalposts or asking God to jump over the hurdles to faith you erect. All along, God has already given many convincing proofs to those with eyes to see. He’s not going to jump through our hoops.

Jesus says repeatedly that the issue is faith, not signs. Even the sign of His resurrection will not be enough to convince those who are committed in their unbelief.
