I won’t do any small group questions with this lesson on Jonah. Our small groups this Sunday we be a promotion. All the students are promoting up to their next grade for the new school year. They will be getting new small group leaders and a new small group room. So this Sunday, I want all our small group leaders to focus on getting to know their small group students. I want all our small group students to focus on getting to know each other and their small group leaders.

The book of Jonah rocked my world! Talk about having a tainted love. Jonah had a very skewed view of love for God and for people. Jonah did not want to go and tell Nineveh about God’s forgiving love because Jonah didn’t want God to forgive them. Jonah knew that Nineveh was the capital city of Assyria…who was about to attack the northern kingdom of Israel and send them into exile. How could God forgive His enemies?! Jonah seemed to love God but hate Nineveh. I think our problem is the opposite. It seems to me that we don’t witness because we love people and hate God. Could that be your problem? Check out this study on the book of Jonah, listen to the podcast, and let God rock your world as well. He will use you as a great witness!
