Jonah knew God’s grace, but he didn’t want God to be merciful. Jonah complains in anger, but God responds with another lesson in grace.
Jonah 4:1 (NLT)
This change of plans upset Jonah, and he became very angry.
• Jonah did not want to see the Gentiles spared
– He did not want to share God’s message
– The Israelites were God’s people, there was no room for anyone else
• Jonah had forsaken God’s call
