The Futile Escape of Jonah

I have always been fascinated by the story of Jonah. Here is a man who truly dedicated his whole life to his God - until one day the task just was too hard. And God provided a way for him to try again, and understand that all of God’s children were worth saving.

But (spoiler) even after he fulfilled his task, he didn’t understand. He didn’t get that God cared about everyone, and that - just like he got another chance after leaving knowingly - the people of Ninevah (who hadn’t even realized they were so far off) got another chance as well. Jonah ends in a beautiful way for the people of Ninevah, and very unsatisfying for Jonah, who chooses to sit and wait for a destruction that would never come.

May we all see the worth of those around us, and rejoice when we see others change, instead of holding over their heads all that they have forsaken.
