How similar are we to Jonah? How often do we run from God? How often do we think we deserve to go to heaven and are good enough on our own accord?

How often do we even desire death more than life as if death is what bears peace and joy and satisfaction and the only thing life can bear is suffering? How often do we want to die rather than put sin to death? How often do we desire deceitful, fleeting comfort rather than ultimate, everlasting goodness? How often do we believe the world is for us and God is against us? How often are we similar Jonah?
