Jonah is Taught His True Purpose in Coming
Today I read Jonah 4 where Jonah gets angry with the Lord for sparing the city of Nineveh. He thought that the Lord was going to destroy the city of Nineveh no matter what was done and so after the people repented, he grew upset that the Lord was not going to destroy the city. The Lord explained to Jonah that the people were like cattle, meaning they had not been told the right way of doing things and so had to be led. That was the purpose of Jonah coming, to teach them the right way of doing things. The Lord loves all of His people and wants everyone to be righteous and happy. That is why we have prophets, to tell us the will of the Lord. To help us understand what will make us truly happy. If we will but listen, we can have true joy in this life. Until tomorrow.
