God's messenger (day 30)
The story of Jonah begins on page 162 of The Jesus Storybook Bible. After reading the story we decided to have our afternoon snack for Bible time. We gathered a couple small food items to represent different types of fish/food in the ocean. We then chose different utensils to represent different mouths that fish have. For example a toothpick, clothespin, spoon, or tongs each are able to pick up different foods. As Von pointed out God made different creatures to eat different foods so "we don't run out of food." Only the tongs were able to pick up the banana which represented Jonah. God created and chose the perfect fish that was able to swallow and save Jonah.
the point? God commands everything... the sea, the fish, etc.
