From today’s reading...
But Jonah made ready to flee to Tarshish away from the LORD.”
By ignoring the will of God Jonah not only put himself in jeopardy but the crew of the ship on which he traveled and even the citizens of Ninevah who needed to hear the Word of God.
You do not live on an island.
You do not live in a silo.
Everything you do impacts the world in some way, great or small.
You know what you need to do and what you need to stop doing.
That is the Word of God speaking to you and only by listening to it and following it will you be able to...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
