Daily Bible Reading: Luke 12:35 – 59
Verse of the Day: Luke 12:54 – 56 – “And he said to the multitudes also, When ye see a cloud rising in the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it cometh to pass. And when ye see a south wind blowing, ye say, There will be a scorching heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye know how to interpret the face of the earth and the heaven; but how is it that ye know not how to interpret this time?”
We pay a lot of attention to the weather forecasts. We plan events and then watch and pray for good weather. Jesus in these verses above is challenging His followers that they need to pay as much attention to the events of history happening around them as they do to the weather.
They had fulfillment of prophecy happening all around them in Jesus, and yet they were missing it. Do we pay as much attention to what they Scriptures are teaching us as we do to the weather?
Prayer: Give me eyes to discern the events around me in light of Your Word. Amen.
