Jonah: The Poison of Self-Righteousness, Part 2

Text: Jonah 4:1-11

Not only does self-righteousness cause us to see God as our debtor, but it causes us to see ourselves as better, stronger, and wiser than we really are. At the same time, it causes us to see people not as people, but merely as yardsticks by which we can (favorably) measure ourselves. Only grace is strong enough to deliver us from these delusions, and that’s what we’ll see in this sermon.
