Why is it that so often we don’t listen to God? Why do we think that some people don’t deserve to know Him? That was Jonah’s problem, God asked him to tell people to repent and follow God, but Jonah didn’t think they deserved it. So he ran away, but God convinced him to go to Ninevah.
It was a success! The people listened and repented, turning back to God. What evangelist wouldn’t want those results? Well, Jonah didn’t want them and was saddened by it. Even through that, God attempted to teach Jonah a lesson about caring for others.
How about you? Do you care about others?
