Inability to Discern Signs

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 16.
The Pharisees and Sadducees confronted Jesus, hoping to trip Him up, asking for a sign from heaven (Matthew 16.1). He responded that they could not discern the signs from heaven. They could discern the weather, but they could not put together the ministry of Jesus with the predicted signs of the times in Scripture (v. 2, 3). They did not want a sign to see the connection between Jesus and the Scriptures, but that they might have a reason for condemning Him. Therefore, He said, “‘A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.’ And He left them and departed” (Matthew 16.4).
What do you seek from the Lord?
