Jonah, why so angry?
You of all people should know God’s mercy extends farther than you could imagine, into the depths of the sea, to the roots of the mountains and the dark of a fish’s belly.
God’s deliverance gobbled you whole, yet you despise the salvation offered through your own message.
You give us hope. You give us a warning.
