Jonah Pouts

Why’d I have to
Come this way?
This is why
I ran away.

Rich in mercy
You relent
When the people
Do repent.

I did not want
This evil place
To receive Your
Love and grace.

You insisted,
I obeyed,
And the people
Turned and prayed.

Now I sit to
Watch and wait,
Angry that
They will be saved.

(Jonah 1 – 4)

    I love this retelling of Jonah’s story. The rhyme scheme is awesome!
