But the Lord replied, “Have you any right to be angry?”
God asks Jonah about his anger. Jonah does not seem to let go of it, to the end. Some things we have no control over, many things happens for a greater purpose which we cannot begin to understand. Anger has no value. It changes nothing. It does not make good things happen, or please God. It has a certain energy, no doubt, but think of that energy turned to a more righteous form- turned to a positive goal!
Dear God, you led Jonah to do good, despite his not understanding. Then he was angry at the good results. Help me to be in tune with your plan for me, and help me to change my anger into something more positive and more in keeping with your will. Amen
