Sour Grapes at a Saving God
INTRODUCTION - Jonah is no hero
Jonah’s Anger at God’s Compassion (4:1-4)
Jonah was honest with God.
And he prayed to the LORD
Jonah’s anger revealed his motives.
O LORD, is not this what I said when I was yet in my country? That is why I made haste to flee to Tarshish;
Jonah knew the character of God but didn’t feel the compassion of God.
for I knew that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relenting from disaster.
