Jonah seems to start out OK, outside of the fact that he’s running from the call of God. It’s not disrespect, although it is disobedience. As much as he is resistant to going to Nineveh, God remains merciful. Interestingly, Jonah also seems to want the sailors to be safe, like God wants Jonah to be safe. So… Jonah goes overboard…. Into the belly of a big fish! Take away: God, in his grace, will take care of us while he waits for us to respond to his call on our lives. Even while we’re running away, God is there!
