The Search for a Sign


He looked for a sign,
Some words from the sky
(Will planets align?)
A note from on high.

The words were as plain
As plain words could be.
He called them insane.
He said, "I don't see."

The words weren't his style.
They'd hinder his will.
He closed both his eyes
And looked for words still.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Corinthians 1:22-25 ESV)

There are an awful lot of people just like those you describe, looking for a sign and refusing to read what has been written.

Great post.
