Jonah 4 vs 11 means this. God 's Prophets were often selfish and self seeking. I 'm amazed at how God used a man who hated the Ninevehites, to warn them of destruction. in fact that i why Jonah headed for Tarshish. He knew God 's compassion was greater in this case than his wrath. We must remember this if God supplies a gourd to comfort us, it may also contain a worm of agitation. Imagine being upset because God Almighty soared 120,000 souls, plus cattle. Praise God the King of Nineveh humbled himself and was not like Pharaoh in Egypt. This is why in America we need to pick our leaders wisely. Arrogant leaders often bring calamity on their people. Aren 't you glad that God Almighty is full of compassion? Are we better than he Ninehvites? Thank you Lord Jesus for sparing me!

Jonah did not understand the mercy of God Yet we too cannot understand the ways of God for as high as the heavens are above the earth so are the ways of God above ours We will have to wait until we get to heaven to find out the answer
