Plant worship

Jonah 4:6”So the LORD God appointed a plant and it grew up over Jonah to be a shade over his head to deliver him from his discomfort. And Jonah was extremely happy about the plant.


Don’t we some time worship, praise, exalt, pay tribute to, speak highly of, eulogize, compliment and throw bouquets at the wrong person/thing? Let me explain.  God appointed a plant and it grew up over Jonah to be a shade over his head to deliver him from his discomfort. And Jonah was extremely happy about the plant.  Did you see that? God is able to bring a plant into existence in a jiffy! Clap your hands for God, will you?  You stand upside down to do it your own way but God can just speak and bring it into existence.  Instead of thanking God for His goodness, mercy, compassion, greatness, highness and miracle working power, here we find Jonah being extremely happy about the plant.  How sad.

Now God had to demonstrate to Jonah about His power, so He sends a worm to destroy the plant and also appoints a scorching east wind against Jonah; however, did Jonah get it? Let me just say an emphatic, “NO!” Jonah missed the point, like many of us today.  Many people compromise going to church on Sundays and go to work,  justifying their action by saying, ‘God understands.’  YES, He understands the lackadaisical attitude and wickedness of His people.  Like the 9 lepers who did not return to thank God, many forget the goodness of God.  We as church leaders watch this all our life, people running to the altar for favor but forget Him and worship facebook when they get the goodies.  

Dear friend, How different are we from the pagan people who thank the sun, moon, stars, tree and stone for their blessings rather than the Creator? Tell me.   Don’t you salute your boss more passionately than worshipping God?  Are you not careful not to offend your boss but you care two hoots about God?  It breaks my heart to watch Christians ignore church, Bible, prayer, fasting and still say, ‘I love you Jesus!’   None of us will never be able to count the myriad blessings we have received from God, be thankful only to HIM!
