There’s always Hope

Challenging and hard times fall on each and everyone of us. The definition of oneself lies in such moments. One can run away and hide or face the challenge that lies ahead. In today’s first reading Jonah goes to Nineveh where he starts to preach to the people, who had turned away from God. While reading I thought: “Why do these people-his own-with such a rich heritage, refuse to reform their ways and respond to God with faith and justice, with prayer and hope?” In the end the people of Ninevah converted. They stopped running away. Facing God, they were challenged to change their ways. A change which transformed their lives.
