He is the God of Second Chances

Jonah 3:1  Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time.

Did you see that?  The word of the Lord came a SECOND time.  Thank goodness He is not a God of "If-you-don't-get-it-the-first-time-you-are-doomed!"  He is the God of the first time, the twentieth time and the seventy-fifth time. 

Jonah had run away from God, but was given a second chance to participate in God's work.  You  may feel as though you are disqualified from serving God because of past mistakes.  But serving God is not an earned position~ no one qualifies for God's service.  But God still asks us to carry out His work.  You may get another chance.~

Praise God! I need to make sure that I forgive as He forgives us, too.
