What does the story of Jonah teach us? Jonah’s anger towards God for being merciful and abounding in steadfast love for Nineveh speaks of a difficult thing for us. Sometimes, what we see as miserable failure and respond to in anger is actually success for God. God’s true character is made know in Jonah’s life and proclamation and many are saved – yet, Jonah does not celebrate and rejoice in God’s goodness. God’s love perseveres in the story of Jonah and in our own lives as we struggle to listen, obey, live in faith, and keep from running in the opposite direction.
