Jonah 4:2-3   (Part2) Exodus 12:43-51  (Part2)  

         How well do we know our God? So many of us think that we know God so well! We can recount all the things that we
have seen God do in our lifetime. How magnificent He is! How forgiving and gracious He is! How all-knowing and powerful
He is! We can do this before God as if we are really bragging about ourselves knowing such a powerful and wonderful God.
We are not even mentioning our love for Him nor our thankfulness for all that He does on our behalf. Is there something
wrong with this picture? This sounds like the prophet Jonah’s behavior when he prayed to God after Nineveh repented of
their sinful ways and asked God’s forgiveness. God forgave them and Jonah became angry with God, because he did not
want the people of Nineveh to be saved. Do we really know the depth of God’s goodness and His grace in our personal
lives? Can we just wholeheartedly say thank you Lord?! Or do we just throw His love and His grace back in His face when
things do not go our way?
