Our God is a patient Teacher.- Yet His people so often are slow, stubborn pupils.- So God's school of providence runs throughout our lives, teaching us with our senses what our souls could not otherwise absorb.- -And the LORD God prepared a plant and made it come up over Jonah,- Jonah 4-6 -NKJV-.-When Jonah got angry at God for sparing Nineveh, his temper ran so hot that he ignored God's questioning- -Is it right for you to be angry--- Like a sulking child, Jonah simply sat outside the great city, hoping against hope that the enemies of his countrymen would yet be destroyed, and his reputation as their prophet reinforced.- It's silliness to give God the silent treatment, don't you think- God's omniscience means our feelings cannot be hid from Him- the reality of who we really are and what we're really thinking is laid bare before Him -- always.- So, as Jonah sulked, God sent a plant, and then a worm, and then a wind more fierce than Jonah's anger. The great fish was long gone, but God's school of providence was back in session.- Would Jonah finally learn his lesson-- We hope to see you here this Sunday as we continue our study of Jonah with -God of Mercy- The School of Providence.-
