Isn't interesting how we all love justice, until we find
ourselves on the "hot seat". When someone commits a
horrendous wrong, we often want them prosecuted to the fullest
extent of the law. When we find ourselves in a similar
situation we plead for grace.
A great example of this is in our driving. When someone is driving too slow, we get frustrated and blurt out as we race around them,
"Speed up you slow poke!"
However, if someone flies by our vehicle we mutter under our breathe,
"What a manic! They're going to kill someone!"
Isn't it amazing how our true selves are exposed while we are behind the wheel? Humans, we're a funny hypocritical bunch, is there a solution to this problem?
There is this beautiful word that can give us all
hope: repentance. The Hebrew word
for repentance that is used in Jonah chapter
three means this: to walk down a road only to discover
it's the wrong way, and then turn around and go in the right
direction. Simple. Clear. Healing.
However here is the rub for all of us: when confronted with the truth, are we willing to humble ourselves and admit that we are wrong...or will we continue to stubbornly travel in the wrong direction? Join us for part four of Jonah, the story of you, and learn how to listen to the truth and then have the courage to change.
