JONAH: CHOICES, CONSEQUENCES, SECOND CHANCES

JONAH 2

Choices have consequences. We are free to make our choices, but we don’t get to choose the consequences of those choices. Jonah chose to disobey God by jumping on a ship to Tarshish, going in the opposite direction of Nineveh, and ending up in the belly of a great fish. Jonah did not pray during the storm, when his shipmates exposed him as a rebel, or even when they threw him overboard. But, Jonah did pray in the belly of the whale. We know that Jonah survived the time in the fish. Today, the passage covers what happened, what changed, and why the change was possible.
