This prophet of God likes to learn lessons the hard way. He will be on a hillside bemoaning the fact that God relented in punishing Nineveh. He is angry with God and let’s God know just how upset he is. God uses this as an opportunity to teach Jonah a lesson about compassion
Who are you? If you begin with “I am a child of God” then your priorities are correct. If you start with anything else and “I am a child of God” is further down the list ask yourself why it isn’t at the top of your list. Recently Cindy and I heard a line in a movie that really hit me between the eyes “Your identity is who your heart is tied to.” I want to suggest to you tonight as we look at this Psalm, David’s heart is tied to God. He knows he is a child of the living God.
