How’s The Weather There?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Matthew 16:3b

You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.


Earlier in the text, Jesus told the Pharisees and Sadducees that they could tell what the weather would be like that day based upon what they observed in the sky through forecasting the signs. However, He said, “You can’t interpret the signs of the times.”


Obviously Jesus was speaking of spiritual matters when He spoke of the “Signs of the Times.” It appears as though we haven’t advanced much from the Pharisees position over 2,000 years ago. There are Biblical prophecies that are being fulfilled almost as I write, yet people continue to be concerned about such mundane things as the weather. Can the quest for small stuff ever become secondary? That’s the challenge of our day. The signs of the times are all around us. St. Paul called these signs of the times, “Terrible Times” (2 Tim. 3:1). One can certainly tell we’ve arrived there, because the big question all day will be, “How’s The Weather There?”


Dear Jesus,

I’ve put the talk of weather behind me in order to discern the “Signs of the Times.” Help me help others. Amen
