And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
– Jonah 3:4-5
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
The people of Nineveh were quite frightened to hear the proclamation from Jonah, for they believed in. Then, all people within the city fasted, and confessed and repented their sins before God, and eventually they won God’s mercy and survived. This shows us that God’s disposition is righteous, but what He reveals most for mankind is mercy, as He hopes they can live under the care and protection of Him.
