but he really never got it, sad but true!
and if you watch it you can spot it, a-doodley-doo!
he did not get the point!
God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, but he got up and went in the opposite direction. He bought a ticket to Tarshish, hoping to escape from the Lord. Shouldn't a prophet know you can't run from God? (smiles) You know the story of how God sent a violent storm, the crew threw Jonah overboard, a big fish swallowed him, then spit him out on the shore. It's the rest of the story that really struck me.
Did Jonah forget that God had just relented and rescued him?
