A God of Second Chances

"Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: 'Go to the city of Ninevah and proclaim to it the message I give you.' Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Ninevah" (Jonah 3:1-3a).


One more thing we learn about God from this whole Jonah and the fish story is that no matter how far you've run or how long you've been gone, God's still got a plan and a purpose for your life. Whenever you're ready to turn around, God accepts you -- doesn't spend time saying, "I told you so" and is ready with your next assignment. God is a God of second chances.

Oh, and don't be surprised if your next assignment is a lot like your last assignment.
