READING: JONAH 4
When the Ninevites respond with repentance and fasting, Jonah reacts with anger rather than rejoicing, because he resents God’s willingness to show mercy to his enemies. The Lord teaches Jonah a lesson on compassion by using a vine as an object lesson.
We typically want God to treat us with grace and to treat our enemies with justice.
