The Book of Jonah – What if God calls you to do something you don’t want to do? When Jonah ran away from God’s call He knew the character of God–quick to forgive, full of love, and a desire to restore. Jonah speaking this truth in the midst of his disobedience. God’s lesson for us: I am merciful. I am motivated by love. I am quick to forgive. I will give you another chance.
