Lesson...Learned???

today's reading.
Jonah 3   Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it the message that I tell you"...

the blog.
So Jonah gets his act together and goes to Nineveh. The people--all the way down to the king--hear his message and repent, and as a result, God spares Nineveh. Now at this point you'd think All's well that ends well, but not for Jonah. He's mad that God didn't destroy the city. So Jonah has a pout fest. He complains to God and they (God and Jonah) converse about the situation. But unfortunately, Jonah's heart is hard and he is not in a good place with God when we reach the end of the Book.

So what's the most important thing you learned from Jonah's story? What did this tiny little Book show you about God? What did it show you about your relationship and interaction with Him? Tami W.
