text : Jonah 3:1-5, 3:10-4:11
theme verse : “And the Lord said, ‘Is it right for you to be angry?’” (Jonah 4: 4)
If you think being swallowed by a fish is bad, try forgiving people you despise. Just ask Jonah. God’s about to cut a break to a people that have mistreated him and his community. We need to explore forgiveness and what it looks like in a world where pain and injury run deep.
