There are certain things in our lives we simply need to let go of in order to grow in our walk with Christ. These things do not have any place in our life as a Christian. We need to get rid of them and don't let them back in.
Jonah 4 concludes one of the shortest books of the Bible. In the course of 4 chapters, we are challenged with God's incredible power and rule; hurling a storm onto the sea, appointing a fish, a plant, and a worm to teach a rebellious prophet. Yet, we also see God patient, merciful, and compassionate upon undeserving prophet and an underserving violent and wicked city. We are struck with amazement that God would so slow to anger and so quick to extend mercy. The prophet Jonah teaches us how bitterness and anger can cause us to flee the presence of God and hate the works of God. May we instead, have enough faith to trust God to apply mercy in Holy and just ways. The book of Jonah provides an important lesson for how God's people should resist anger and instead extend Christ-like compassion.

Ruth: Redeeming Grace
Naomi's circumstances have made her bitter - is there a balm for bitterness? How do we cope when life "goes wrong" and how do we respond to difficulties and failures - especially when we trust that God is in control as sovereign? When bitterness drives us from him, we need to return to him, listen to him - but we also need to wait for his timing. Listen and explore the passage with Peter.

Have you ever dealt with bitterness before? Perhaps you’ve been bitter towards a friend for betraying you, a family member for hurting your feelings, or even a teacher for flunking you?
