Just got this from Pastor Derik Lawrence

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 raging… 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 didn’t work… 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 you…and thus food for thought…why didn’t Jonah cast himself overboard if he knew he was the problem?

Something to think about, huh?

  1. Deep down we want affirmation. Pride is at the heart of our slams on ourself. We want to hear someone affirm what we really believe about ourselves. That we are really good people.
