A Bit Brighter

This change of plans greatly upset Jonah, and he became very angry. So he complained to the Lord about it. – Jonah  4:1-2a

We all seem to complain when things don’t go the way we want them to. It happens more often than not. Sometimes we don’t even realize we are actually doing it. Jonah had done what God had asked of him, in spite of how he felt. When the Lord did not pass judgment on the Ninevites, it struck a sour chord with Jonah. He probably wondered how this could be, these guys are horrible sinners? Why do they get a free pass, when I was swallowed by a giant fish for something far less? Many of us have probably had similar thoughts when things don’t go our way or life seems unfair. Bitterness, anger, and pride can often creep into our thoughts and cause us to act poorly. Remember God’s ways are above ours and His mercy is endless. Remember we are to forgive others as He has forgiven you and find peace in His forgiveness
