The story of Jonah teaches us about the mercy and the justice of God. We must be careful not to confuse our idea of justice with the Lord's true justice. When we truly understand what will happen to the enemies of God, we must do everything we can to push them toward God's mercy. We must forgive our enemies, for we have been forgiven.
