Bible Text: Jonah 1:1-17 |


God thinks and acts differently than we do. He wanted Jonah to reach out to the cruel and brutal Assyrian nation by having Jonah preach to their capital city of Nineveh. Jonah hated the Assyrians so much he would rather live in exile, or die, than to bring hope to the hated Assyrians. By the end of chapter 1, the bright spot in the story were the sailors who severed and worshiped the LORD, the God of Heaven. Learn from Jonah. Don't trifle with God! He can get your attention if he wants to!
