Red Skies

Sunset behind Darkness ahead

Dearest often quotes the old saying, “Red sky at night; sailors delight. Red sky at morning; sailors take warning.” But I didn’t know it was in the Bible. This came in my “Gospel a Day” email:

Matt 16:1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather; for the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’  You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” So he left them and departed.
