Have you ever been disgusted with God? So disgusted with how God lets evil go unchecked, and how God doesn’t seem to protect you or your family or your plans, or how God seems to bless the wicked people while not helping the righteous?
Have you ever been so disgusted with how God seems to behave that you didn’t want anything to do with Him?
I have felt that way before. And so did Jonah. Jonah was so disgusted with God that he asked God to damn him. This, and more, is what we learn from Jonah 4:9.
The Text of Jonah 4:9
Then God said to Jonah, “Is doing good infuriating to you—because of the vine?” And he said, “Doing good is infuriating to me—unto death.”
In this discussion of Jonah 4:9 we look at:
- What God meant by His question to Jonah.
- Why God calls it good that a vine was destroyed.
- How Jonah responds to God’s question.
- Why Jonah wants God to kill and damn him.
