A Whale of a Tale
Jonah's story is a whale of a tail. He ran from God's calling, was punished, and finally delivered the message to save Nineveh. In the end he prayed for his own death. Was it because he knew that God was a forgiving God and that he hated evil more than he loved good. He knew that God would save them if they repented. As with Jonah, we need to let go of hate an become God's messenger.
