Lessons from the Whale's Belly
November 24, 2012 By M. J. Maynard



Has God ever had to do something drastic to get your attention? Jonah could answer a big "yes" to that question! Jonah's initial refusal to follow God's leading was so arrogant. It was a definite "I will not." It took a storm in an ancient ship, then three days inside a whale to bring him to repentance.  Can you imagine what it was like in there--the smells, the darkness, the constant motion?  Yuk!


There have been times in my life that I have not followed God's will, and the lessons that followed were not easy.  Those times in the "belly of the whale" led me to repentance, too.  Like the story of Jonah, the lessons learned serve to remind me that it is so much better to obey God's requests the first time he asks. 


I hope your little readers enjoy The Big Fish, our newest Sunday Bells book.
