NO! I don't want to!
Parent’s Corner- June 23, 2019
“The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.”
Psalm 103:8 ESV
Every time I think about the story of Jonah, I can’t help but think of the stubbornness of a toddler. . . NO! I don’t want to! Isn’t it a beautiful picture of God’s graciousness that he dealt with Jonah so well! How many times am I like Jonah. . . NO! I don’t want to! I’m so thankful that God’s mercy and graciousness extends to us all!
We serve a good and gracious God. May He bless you this week!
