Lessons from Jonah

I'm reading about Jonah in Bruce Feiler's Where Was Born and noted several lessons. "In moments of personal turmoil, a person no longer wants to be alone.He no longer wants independence...The only answer to chaos is God...As long as humans can still learn to live righteously, God says, he will protect them...God meets you most intimately in your moments of darkness," writes Bruce Feiler.

Lead a virtous life. Be good. Be patient. God will wait for you.

God will wait for me if I try to keep his word.

Bruce Feiler writes-"God cares only that you conduct yourself in a moral way,even if you have to repent to do so."
