Father, today's reading serves as a gentle reminder how easy it is to commit spiritual adultery and infidelity toward You. Fear alone robs us of your Love and assurance. The scribes and Pharisees constantly needed proof and assurance rather than just standing in Faith, but they did not have Faith, that's why they couldn't stand in it. Lack of Faith in Your Divine Protection and Love is committing adultery to You. I don't need a sign, I just need You. I don't need proof, I need You. My committment to You is firmly planted and unshakeable. I am Your child and You are my God. We have a history together and a full Life together and that is what I roll with daily. Thank You Father for putting up with me, even when I don't deserve it. Thank You for quenching my thirst and giving me the wisdom to know You are real and present every minute of my day.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, "Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you."
39 But He answered them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign; but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nin'eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
