Of course we don't keep doing this into adulthood (unless our name is Lloyd Christmas and we're staring in the film "Dumb and Dumber"). But we still manage to do a fairly good job of not hearing what we don't want to hear as far as listening to God is concerned. Sometimes we simply play dumb. Sometimes we convince ourselves that the message must be intended for someone else. Sometimes we try to drown out the message with other distractions.
Jonah sought to avoid hearing God's message by getting as far away as possible and then going to sleep. But nothing we can do erases the message God has for us. Our actions simply lead us into God's best or away from it.
I hope you'll be able to join us this coming Sunday, April 30th, as we continue our journey through the book of Jonah.
