He is a merciful-ish God
People hassle God for being wrathful. Why doesn’t He save all the starving people et al.? But in this week’s bible reading we learn, after Jonah is swallowed by a whale and seemingly condemned for death, “the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto the dry land.” So it’s all swings and roundabouts really.
