God gives everyone second chances.
In today’s lesson, we’re learning what happened to Jonah. Remember, he had been swallowed by a big fish. Well, after three days and three nights, Jonah realized that disobeying God wasn’t worth it so he apologized to God and told him he would go to Nineveh. So, the big fish spit Jonah out and Jonah did exactly what God told him to do. He went to the city of Nineveh and warned the people that if they didn’t stop their evil ways, God would destroy their city. Here’s the crazy thing. The people actually listened to Jonah’s message! The people told God they were sorry and they turned back to God! And that meant God wouldn’t destroy their city. Kids, here’s what we can learn from the story of Jonah. God gives second chances. He gave Jonah a second chance when he had the fish spit him out so he could go to Nineveh and he gave the Ninevites a second chance when they responded to Jonah’s warning. And guess what? God gives us second chances, too. When we mess up, God will forgive us!
