Book of Jonah (esp. 4:2)

Jonah did everything he could think of to keep God’s message from Ninevah. When they finally received the message and repented, Jonah still had no kind thoughts, words, or deeds for the Ninevites. What does it mean when we believe that God’s goodness and mercy end with us? What happens in our lives and in the world when we become through-ways for kindness instead of kindness cul-de-sacs?
