DG BookGospel: Lk 12:54-59
Jesus said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once: ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. And when
the wind blows from the south, you say: ‘It will be hot’; and so it is. You superficial people! You understand the signs of the earth and the sky,


but you don’t understand the present times. And why do you not judge for yourselves what is fit? When you go with your accuser before
the court, try to settle the case on the way, lest he drag you before the judge and the judge deliver you to the jailer, and the jailer throw you in prison. I tell you,
you will not get out until you have paid the very last penny.”

 

Reflection

The truth about Jesus has been in plain sight
since the very beginning of His ministry. It is for all those
who have eyes to see. Right in front of their eyes he had
healed the sick and raised the dead. Right in front
of their eyes people had gathered in their thousands
to hear his teaching. None of these things had been done
in secret. The signs are there. The evidence is clear. So
what prevented the people of Jesus’ time to recognize
the sign? It is because they have a different notion of
what a Messiah is. In their own history as God’s people,
the Messiah has always been a special person anointed
by God. The likes of Moses, Joshua, David, Samson and
the likes are humans. And so, when God’s only Son Himself
came down to be their savior, they are hard pressed
to recognize him. More so when Jesus advocates the
revolution of love, rather than of military might and
power. Nothing like this has happened before in their
past. That is why they miss God’s signs all along.
