The story of Jonah and the big fish is very familiar. But Jonah’s story shows us that if we truly understand God’s mercy and grace it may take us in directions we would rather not go and towards people we would rather not care about. We are reminded we do our own running away from God , we should respect and love those who are different to us, we need to understand afresh God’s grace, His undeserved favour towards us, which is the central message of the gospel.
