May 26, Jonah 4:5-11 Jonah wallows in self pity

I can picture this in my mind, Jonah leaves the city and finds a nice place to watch the destruction, or at least what he hoped to see. The text says that he made a tent or booth, it might actually mean he found a natural shelter which would be the plant, whatever type that was. When the destruction doesn't come Jonah becomes angry as we saw yesterday and then when the plant dies he becomes angry at the plant. Some aspects of this I can understand and some are just baffling. I've been in situations where things went wrong and felt misplaced anger. Most of us have had at least one run in with customer service about some product or schedule problem. We tend to take it out on the person who is not at fault. Jonah is angry at the plant but it was God who caused all things. Should Jonah be angry with God? Yep! But at the same time Jonah should be thankful with God for the things he has. Jonah is a prophet, chosen by god for His purposes yet he doesn't understand grace.
