SCRIPTURE

Jonah 4

OUTLINE

Jonah’s Mistakes…

Mistake #1: Disregards God’s mission for his life

Mistake #2: Prejudiced

Mistake #3: Twisted allegiance

Mistake #4: We want forgiveness for ourselves and punishment for everyone else

Mistake #5: We want shock and awe in Nineveh

What we learn about God…

  1. God sees things I can’t see
  2. God is good to me even when I’m complaining
  3. God is in control of the big picture

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Who is God asking you to forgive?
  2. 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?
  3. Jonah obeyed God out of obligation instead of heartfelt love. What is the difference between the two?
  4. Jonah’s mission was to go to Nineveh. What is your current mission?
  5. How is Eugene like Nineveh? How are you like Jonah? What will you do now?
