“And the people of Nineveh believed God” Jonah 3:5

Jonah wasn’t optimistic that the evil people of Nineveh whom he despised could change their ways. But God believed they could, and they did. There are so many reasons to be pessimistic these days. We’ve seen so many people do thing that are unconscionable, and we have a hard time believing they could ever change. We have our own personal enemies too, people in our lives who anger us, disappoint us, betray us. And it’s easy to fall into Jonah’s way of thinking, that people don’t change. But God doesn’t think that about anyone. People can and do change. People can and do turn from evil. People who didn’t believe in God can come to faith in the Lord. May God help us see people the way God sees people.
