Biblical Musings Jonah 1:1-3

Mediterranean Sea (near Caesarea, North of Joppa) 
The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.  Jonah 1:1-3 (NIV)

Have you ever run from God? I have tried it and would not recommend it. What can motivate a person to run from God?
