Jesse Tree (December 14)

December 14th


A Fish

Scripture Reading:

The Book of Jonah or a Child’s Story BookMain Ideas:

It’s very interesting to me to compare the people who heard the prophet Jonah’s message in Ninevah with those who heard Noah’s warnings before the Flood.  The Word of God is accepted by those whose hearts are ready.  Perhaps this morning you could pray that God would prepare the hearts of our loved ones who don’t know Him — that they will be ready to accept His Word.

Discussion Questions:

1.  What do you see of the attributes of God in these verses?

2.  Jonah tried to run away from God.  Is it possible to hide from God?  Why or why not?

3.  When Jonah went to Ninevah, what was the message he preached to them?

4.  What did the people do when they heard this message?
