“God told Jonah to obey,
said, ‘Go to Nineveh this day.’
But, stubborn Jonah fled instead.
Didn’t do just what God said.”
Jonah’s disobedience landed him inside a big fish! And there he had time to think and pray.
Children will feel the waves and hear the splash as Jonah sinks “down and down and down” into the belly of the fish. This story serves as an excellent reminder of how important it is to listen to God.
