Third Sunday of Lent

For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles... 1 Corinthians 1:22-23

It seems to me no one is happy unless they receive a sign. Don't move unless you get a thumbs up. Reminds me of the game Simon Says. Some of us get signs for specific reasons, others get signs, but unfortunately when we are not paying attention we will not see them. Come to a stop light, you notice what color, and proceed from there or you stop. If your not paying attention you could end up in serious trouble. We become conditioned to do so many things, from the smallest of tasks to the biggest of burdens. We see so very much, yet we see so very little of what is truly important, the many signs given to us daily to bring us a stronger faith and love for God.
If we were playing Simon Says right now, Simon would say open your eyes.
