You probably played hide-and-seek as a kid – and after being ‘found’ a dozen times or so, you had to get really creative in finding new places to hide. But at the end of the game everyone would come together because it was all just pretend. No one wanted, or intended to hide forever.
Do you remember hearing a Bible story about a prophet and a gigantic fish? Yup, you got it – the story of Jonah and the Whale! It’s a story of hide and seek… but this wasn’t a game. Jonah was running – trying to hide from God, forever. You may think you know how it all ended, but God is not done with the story of Jonah. There’s a message in it for us right now. The choices we make and our willingness to listen to God ultimately determines where we land. Just like Jonah.
