Jonah finally obeyed God, but he took no joy in the revival following his preaching in Nineveh. His self-focus kept him from seeing the big picture. Instead, he sat down and complained to God. Will we learn from Jonah’s mistakes? Will we stop clinging to our own desires?

God has many ways of getting us to say yes, even when we’re digging in our heels. This is especially clear as we study the life of the prophet Jonah. God has a multitude of creative ways to make sure we change our minds.

The Bible tells how slaves are expected to relate to their masters. In the culture of the first century, vast numbers of people were slaves. Still, we can draw valuable principles from First Peter on how to respond to authority in today’s society.

Ever wonder why you’ve been placed on Planet Earth? In a marvelous verse from God, our reason for being is connected with our roles as members of a divine community. Let’s seek some clarity on why you and I are here, and what God expects us to do with this truth.
