Signs really can be funny things! The people designing and making them know what they mean but sometimes they can be confusing or just funny. It’s like the wording that used (and may still be?) on the bottom of a McDonald’s coffee cup, ‘warning, contents may be hot’.
Does God always speak clearly or is he ever cryptic?
Jesus often spoke in parables (stories). His language was simple but sometimes the message of the parable was hard to understand. Some of the time people had to ask Jesus what the parable meant and I wonder if this is really what he really wants from us?
Jesus doesn’t want to send us a set of impersonal instructions, he wants a relationship with us. He is not a heavenly Satnav, he is a person who is wants to be ‘with us’ in life.
We live in an instant society where we expect things to be quick and easy but perhaps God wants us to work on our relationship with him.
Lets make time to talk with God today. Perhaps he will give you a sign!
