Job and Jonah....

I finished up reading the Book of Job last night and then read Jonah this morning. What stood out to me about both books was the reminder that God is in charge and that I’ve spent way too much time in life worried about things outside of my control. The following scripture from the end of Jonah pretty much sums it up……

But God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?”
“It is,” he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead.”

But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”Jonah 4:9-11
