Jonah. You know the story, the fish with the big mouth. But the bigger story is how much there is here about what God is like. The book of Jonah is full of irony, strange twists and at least three simultaneous, surprising plots. The story ends with Jonah paused at a crossroads, undecided. We must not follow Jonah's foolish example. God is showing himself compassionate, on a mission to save the lost and able to carry out any number of his purposes all at once, no problem. Our part is to reflect his compassion and mission mindset.
