Jonah 1:1-2:10 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil has come up before me"...
think about it.
What is Jonah's view of God like? How far do you think God would go to bring you back to Himself?
I'm so thankful that God isn't fickle like Jonah (or us for that matter)--that He doesn't show us love and favor one day and then change His mind and treat us differently the next. God never changes, and that is so evident from Jonah's story. All through this book we see God's continual love and pursuit of Jonah, independent of Jonah's heart, his attitude, his mood or demeanor. (Again, thank you, Lord!)
So what can we do to be more consistent (less fickle) in responding to God's love and the tasks He has for us? Tami W.
