Are you skeptical of the story of Jonah because you think it is a fish story? Yet I mentioned it in reference to the similarities to my own story. You could look beyond the fish to see the real essence of the story is about a reluctant prophet. I called Jonah to serve me and he did it under protest, to put it mildly. He was my prophet but he was full of prejudice and he did not share my values. My word teaches you to love your enemies and I was trying to teach Jonah the same lesson, which he was slow to learn. Do you look upon your enemies as a ministry opportunity and rejoice when they respond and I pour out grace upon them?
I'm leaving town for a few days.
