God sent Jonah to the city of Ninevah to tell them to repent of their sins. Jonah obeyed, but he did not have compassion for the people. God told Jonah that the city had more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who could not tell their right hand from their left. Could this have meant that they did not have a concept of right and wrong? Did this mean that there were thousands of children too young to know left from right? Whatever the meaning, it was a city filled with people that mattered to God. He wanted them to hear the truth and turn from their evil ways. In speaking with Jonah, he asked him this question: "Should I not be concerned about that great city?"
There are so many people–so many cities. So many streets, so many houses. Do they know about the love of God? Do they know about Jesus’ sacrifice made for them? Would they turn and follow God if they knew?
Reach out to show His love to just one person when the opportunity arises. I know that’s what I need to do, and I need to do it more. Should I not be concerned?
