Old Testament: Jonah 3:1-5,10
1Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time:
2"Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you."
3Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very important city-a visit required three days.
4On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned."
5The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.
10When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not bring upon them the destruction he had threatened.
Jonah 3:1-5,10 (NIV)
5Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
6He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah
9Lowborn men are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie; if weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath.
10Do not trust in extortion or take pride in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
11One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong,
12and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.
Psalms 62:5-12 (NIV)
29What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none;
30those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep;
31those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
1 Corinthians 7:29-31 (NIV)
14After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
15"The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
16As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
18At once they left their nets and followed him.
19When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets.
20Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
Mark 1:14-20 (NIV)
