"And should I have compassion on Ninevah, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand?"Jonah 4:11
"And seeing the multitudes He felt compassion for them because they were distressed and downcast like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:36-38
We live in a city where Christians are a small minority. The majority are people who do not know Jesus, and have no hope and no peace. Do we have compassion just as God does? Jonah's concern for his personal comforts and personal issues almost kept him from following God. It is difficult to think of such vast numbers of people who do not know the difference between their right and left hand. There is a great harvest now.
