No, we’re done with the fish’s participation in the story.  This time, it was a worm that had been feeding off the tree.  How interesting that the large “monster” helped Jonah while the little critter bothered him!  Anyway, it caused the plant to finally die, which greatly angered Jonah.  What was the lesson God was trying to teach the prophet by letting the tree die?

-People are more important than a tree-

-People need to take care of their stuff-

-Jonah was going to be judged-

-Jonah was worshipping the tree-
