Let us continue to muse today from Jonah’s storm in 1:3 and Jonah’s foolish disobedience. Let us see today that disobedience always causes us to do foolish things and always leads downward. I see in verse three he went down to Joppa, then down into the ship, and soon down into the depths of the sea. The foolish thing disobedience caused Jonah to do was to try to flee from the presence of God. On two occasions he said he would flee from God’s presence. How foolish for the number two is the number of Christ and He said I’ll never leave you. Surely Jonah knew this principle but disobedience clouded his discernment in making that truth his own.
