We wrap up our Jonah study with a look at chapter 4:5-11. This intense scene of shelter, vines, winds and worms is often difficult to place and understand within the broader context and purpose of the book. But we will see the beautifully simple lesson that God had in mind for Jonah…and for us. Jonah was pro-compassion, just like God. But as this section asks us to compare God and Jonah, they remain very different. The best way for us to get out of a self-imposed, self-righteous, self-deluded prison is to join God in HIS MISSION. It is the most beautiful place we can be.
