Thursday, November 29

[God] reconsidered the calamity that he said he would bring on them, and he did not bring it.—Jonah 3:10.


God does not determine his course of action based on a momentary flare-up of anger, the type of emotional outburst that many humans display. Yet, after observing the Ninevites’ repentant, changed attitude, Jehovah adjusted his decision. In doing so, he manifested reasonableness, humility, and compassion. Similarly, there may be occasions when it would be good for us to reconsider a choice or decision. It could be when the prevailing circumstances change. Jehovah altered his decision at times when circumstances changed. (1 Ki. 21:20, 21, 27-29; 2 Ki. 20:1-5) Or new information may provide us with a valid reason to adjust a decision. King David was given faulty information about Saul’s grandson Mephibosheth. When David later received accurate information, he amended his decision.—2 Sam. 16:3, 4; 19:24-29. w17.03 2:14, 15

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
