GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD
Have you ever been upset when God has bestowed a blessing on someone totally undeserving? After Jonah disobeyed God and repented, God gave Jonah a second chance, sending him to Nineveh again. He was undistracted, unafraid, and boldly proclaimed God’s message in Nineveh. The people believed God, repented, and turned from their evil and violent ways. God spared them. Yet Jonah was in misery! That was not what he wanted to happen. It was not what he thought the Ninevites deserved. Today we will look at both Jonah’s attitude and actions and then at God’s response to Jonah.
