"LEARNING AN EASY LESSON THE HARD WAY"
Intro: Jonah is a little book that has created big problems for people with little faith. Many have had a hard time swallowing this little book. I suppose if it said a trident sub surfaced, took him on board, then submerged and returned him in three days to port, you would have no problem. Your biggest problem is your God is too small. Salvation Army lassie. Jesus attested to the truth of this story.

c. Water sloshing over my head.
d. Sea weeds wrapped around me.
e. Whale was diving down to the depths.
2. Yet Jonah sat there sulking for three days which in those conditions seemed like forever, before he decided to throw in the towel.
3. Jonah shared the lesson so you could learn it.

II. LYING VANITIES PEOPLE ARE OBSERVING TODAY.
A. I can get along without Jesus Christ.
