What we learn about God…
- God sees things I can’t see
- God is good to me even when I’m complaining
- God is in control of the big picture
- Who is God asking you to forgive?
- God provided a storm, fish, plant, worm and wind. What in your life has been a direct provision from God? What was the purpose of the provision?
- Jonah obeyed God out of obligation instead of heartfelt love. What is the difference between the two?
- Jonah’s mission was to go to Nineveh. What is your current mission?
- How is Eugene like Nineveh? How are you like Jonah? What will you do now?
