The book of Jonah shows us the unparalleled beauty of God’s mercy and compassion. The LORD is sovereign over all of creation and in salvation. Desiring to show his mercy to the people of Nineveh, he sends his prophet Jonah to preach to the city. Jonah disobeys. Every other creature obeys God in this book, except the prophet of the LORD! Where is God calling you to great obedience today? We can obey because of His great mercy.
