Jonah -- very, mad (vv 1-4)
Jonah's Hot Head
When anger erupts in us, it is a signal that something is wrong. What anger fails to do, though, is tell us whether the wrong is outside or inside us. We usually begin by assuming that the wrong is outside us -- our spouse or our child or God has done something wrong, and we are angry. That is what Jonah did, and he quarreled with God. But when we track the anger carefully, we often find it leads to a wrong within us -- wrong information, inadequate understanding, underdeveloped heart. If we admit and face that, we pulled out of our quarrel with God into something large and vocational in God.

Principles for life
God can handle your anger.

Knowing about God is not the same as being familiar with His ways.

God's grace and compassion are without limit for the people of the World.

The grace we enjoy is the Grace that God extends to others.
