When Comfort is More Important Than People – Frank van den Bos

May 19, 2017


As we come to the end of this angry prophet’s story, we are confronted by a surreal situation – Jonah suddenly decides he’s going to build a hut, there’s a magical plant that grows and then dies, and it all seems to end on a question – nothing is resolved, and we are left wondering once again what is actually going on here. But if we look deeper, we can see the greatness of the glory and compassion of God, and His patience not only with Jonah, but with all of us. Surprisingly, there is true comfort in here, as well as a great challenge to all of us.
