Second Chance

Jonah 1:1-4 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.” 3 But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

How quick are we to give second chances? Sometimes we have a hard time giving others a second chance, like when our food order is completely wrong, and we are hungry. We might avoid returning to that place. We may not give a second chance to the phone operator who doesn’t understand us, and we want to talk to the manager. What about when we mess up, do we give ourselves a second chance?

God is very quick to give a second chance. God is very quick to help us and see us through when we are struggling. God wants to do that, because He knows that life is not easy, and we need Him! He loves us so much that He cannot let us stay and dwell in our failures. He is willing to give you a second chance. Your life depends on it, and your family’s eternal life depends on it. Don’t quit, don’t give up, take the second chance God is giving you today.
