Teach Kids How to Learn
From Jonah’s Mistakes & Do the Right Thing
Even When God Asks Us to Do Something Difficult!
Even though it is one of the Bible’s shortest books (just four chapters), Jonah is packed with lessons for the youth of today.
Through the actions of Jonah, kids can learn what to do and what not to do when God calls upon them.
For instance, when God told Jonah exactly what He wanted him to do … what did Jonah do in response? He made the mistake of doing the exact opposite!
That’s right, when God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, he actually turned around and went in the opposite direction to try and get away from the Lord.
When you read that in the Bible, it’s easy to say “Are you crazy, Jonah? What were you thinking?” But the truth is many of us disobey God frequently.
Many youth may find themselves in the future doing one thing when they know God is calling them to do something else. Sometimes it can be so easy to give in to our doubts and fears especially when it seems like the way God wants us to go is going to be difficult.
It is at times like these – when we are disobedient and do not do what we feel God calling us to do – that remembering the story of Jonah can have a powerful impact on our lives.
Through the story of Jonah we understand that God is with us wherever we go, in obedience and disobedience. This story also shows us more proof of what it says in Romans 8:28 (NIV):
“… that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

We Must Learn to Surrender
Our Wills to God
The story of Jonah can show us a lot about ourselves.
We all, sooner or later, have experiences that are hard. There may come a time when God asks us to do something difficult, something we don’t want to do.
Our first inclination may be to run the opposite way – just like Jonah did.
How many times do people seek comfort in food, alcohol, drugs and other vices when the real answer is God? How many times do we stress and worry about something that’s most likely not going to happen? How many times do we feel God calling us to do something but we just can’t bring ourselves to follow through on it?
Just like Jonah ultimately did, we need to our humble ourselves and follow God’s will. This simple act of submission can transform our lives and the lives of countless people around us.
That’s why this lesson pack is so valuable. Get it today and help your students learn about Jonah so they can avoid going through what he went through and instead draw strength and courage from God.
