The Lord prefers to see men come to repentance rather than perish. And in the same way that God wanted Jonah to share His concern for the people of Nineveh, God also wants us to share His concern for the people around us. Will you be like Jonah?
When a person truly repents, the Lord will — based on His faithfulness and justice — relent and forgive. But what does it mean to truly repent? Let us learn from Jonah, the king, and the people of Nineveh.
Where we pray matters far less than how we pray. Let us seek God in humility and come to Him with a repentant heart.
When the Lord commands, do you obey? Let us set aside our selfish desires and focus on the mission God has assigned us. May God forgive us for our disobedience!
