Finding Our Way to Nineveh

Chapter 8

~*~Finding our Way to Nineveh~*~

I should explain, this chapter talks about Jonah and the Whale.  Heavenly Father asked Jonah to go to Nineveh (a wicked city) and call them to repentance.  Jonah did not want to go and hopped onto a boat going in the other direction.  Storms were bad and right when everyone could die, Jonah asked the crew to throw him off ship because he knew the storms were because of him.  While in the water, a whale swallowed him.  Over the next three days, he repented for not following the direction Heavenly Father gave him.  When the whale spit him out, he went directly to Nineveh.  Jonah was very surprised, but Nineveh heeded his council and did repent.  What is our Nineveh?

“Finding our way to Nineveh requires becoming willing to do what we need to do to get there.  How badly do we want to get going?  Are we willing to stay pointed in the right direction?  It takes just one step at a time to get there.  Sometimes those steps feel like a marathon.”
