A Bit Brighter
"This change of plans greatly upset Jonah, and he became very angry. So he complained to the Lord about it" – Jonah 4:1-2a
We all seem to complain when things don't go the way we want them to? It happens more often than not. Sometimes we don't realize we are actually doing it. Jonah had done what God had asked of him, in spite of how he felt. When the Lord did not pass judgement on the Ninevites, it struck a sour chord with Jonah. He probably thought, "What? These guys are the worst of the worst. Why do they get a pass, when I was swallowed by a giant fish for something far less?" We tend to have thoughts that are similar to these sometimes. When life takes a sour turn, human pride often gains ground and sometimes we act as we should not. Maybe today, we can change that. – Commentary by Matthew Elliott
Father God, I know I complain about my life a lot. Today, I ask that You help me see more of the good than the bad. Show me how to act as You'd have me act when my life begins to take that sour turn. Amen.
