Jonah and the Big Fish

Jonah and the big fish for kids

Watch the following video about the man Jonah
This story can be found in the book of Jonah.  Can you think of any times when someone told you to do something and you wouldnt listen?  Maybe you can pray with  someone and ask God to help you do what he asks you to do.

Jonah and the big fish for youth

You can find this story in the book of Jonah in the Old Testament.  Jonah was a man who told others about God.  God asked him to go to Ninevah to tell the bad people to turn back to God.  He went in a ship the opposit way and they came across a storm.  He told them to throw him overboard.  At once the storm was calmed.  He went into the belly of a big fish where he prayed.  He survived this and went on to Ninivah where his words persuaded all the people to change their ways.
Watch this film to get a flavour of the story.
Have you been trying hard to ignore God?  If yes maybe you could talk to somone about it.  Maybe they could pray with you?  

Jonah and the big fish for adults

Listen to this summary of the story and read it in the book of Jonah in the Old Testament.
Are you ever like Jonah?  Do you want to go in the opposit direction to the way God wants you to go?  If you are prepared speak to a friend and maybe pray that you will listen to God and follow his ways for your life.
