Wow this is something to think about:
Jonah knew that the mariners were supposed to throw him overboard in order to calm the seas and cease the ragingâ€¦ Jonah 1:12-13 12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you. However, they decided to do it own their own power, which of course didnâ€™t workâ€¦ 13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.
My question for youâ€¦and thus food for thoughtâ€¦why didnâ€™t Jonah cast himself overboard if he knew he was the problem?
Something to think about, huh?
