When I was a child, I often had to stay with relatives. I hated to leave my home. Now that I am an adult, I still love my home and I am sad to leave it.
Recently I was invited to go on a mission trip. I knew God wanted me to go, but I was scared to leave my home. I needed to get my birth certificate before I could get a passport. Because I was born in another country, I thought that I would not be able to get my birth certificate. I thought I could use that as an excuse not to go on the trip.
But God helped me get my birth certificate very quickly. I realized that God was telling me I should go on the trip. So, I obeyed God and went on the mission trip. It was a wonderful trip, and God blessed me and the people I met.
God called Jonah to preach to the people in Ninevah. Jonah did not want to obey God. In our Bible Reading, God reminded Jonah that it was very important for him to do what God wanted him to do.
I hope that you will obey God today.
