Don't smell like fish

Thursday January 29th, Jonah 3: 10 When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them; and he did not do it.  Wow, Jonah did a great job……or perhaps was it God. We often tend to take the credit when things go well and place the blame on God when they do not go well. As we read on we see the Jonah was still not happy, in fact he was downright angry. God continued to work with him, just like God continues to work with us. What God seeks is loving relationships, between you and I, between us and our enemies, between humanity and God, and between humanity and the rest of creation.  We tend to pursue our kind of justice, which all too often smacks of revenge.  In the end, it is God who wins. We might as well go with it sooner than later. You will find that if you follow God’s plan from the beginning, you will smell less like fish when you get to where you have been called. You will end up where God wants you to go anyway, might as well smell fresh when you get there.
