Jonah learned the hard way there is a price for disobedience. This Bible lesson targets 10 to 14 year olds with that message. The lesson relies on a wail tale, or exaggerated tale of woe, involving a modern Jonah.
Reinforce the lesson of Jonah with this free resource by Cheryl Rogers, the publisher of New Christian Books Online Magazine.
This free Bible lesson includes a wail tale about a middle school student Steve, who finds his charmed life turns sour when he runs for Student Council with a bad attitude.
It appears at first that Steven won, but when he is rude to his opponent he learns the vote was very very close. He lands in a runoff election and is defeated.
Steve's life begin unraveling until he learns leaders are servants. He turns to God, surrenders his life, and sees God beginning to turn his life around!
This story, "Too Close to Call" is excerpted from Cheryl's ebook "Just Like Jonah Wail Tales, " a short story collection teaching there is a price to pay when you disobey.
The Lesson of Jonah also includes discussion questions and Bible citations that expand upon the message.
