Bible Text: Jonah 3-4:1 |

How Bitterness Begins

  •  Bitterness is rooted from dissatisfaction in one's life

Foundations of bitterness

  • God's will vs. my will
    • God's will for everyone is found inside His Word
    • Jonah was angry about God's will for his life (Jonah 4:1)

The Focus of bitterness

  • Focused completely on self even if the dilemma is justified
  • "I'm the victim" complex is implied
  • It is used as an excuse to blame God

The Foolishness of bitterness

  • The foolish philosophy of Life
    • "The only thing worth living for is what fulfills our desires"
  • The foolish philosophy of death
    • "Death is better than a world where things are done God's way"
    • "I'd rather die in my will, than live in God's will"
