The king of Nineveh was the equivalent of Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Mao Zedong and Joseph Stalin. King David was a man after God’s own heart. One afternoon he sins and the end result is a very sick baby.
Both men call out to God and demonstrate their sincerity by putting on sackcloth and ashes. Surprisingly, God heals the entire town of Nineveh but allows David to suffer the loss of his son.
Is it ok to ask why or question God’s actions? According to Jesus it is.
Jesus describes the outrage of the Queen of Sheba with the people of Galilee.
God’s ways are inscrutable. Romans 8 says “All things work together” but we have no idea how. That’s the part of life I like. It’s pure mystery but its non fiction.
