Bible Story: Jonah & the Whale (Jonah 1 - 4)

God said to Jonah “Go to Nineveh and do what I say. The people there are wicked. I want them to obey.”


But Jonah boarded a ship and sailed the other way. (Paper boat with Jonah Lego man basin of water.)

God sent a windstorm to shake up the boat. So Jonah told the sailors to throw him overboard. The wind stopped blowing and the waves stopped rolling. (Fan/paper to create wind or simply blow on the boat.)

But down, down, down went Jonah, till a big fish swallowed him (bath toy fish or orange juice container turned into big fish.) For 3 days and 3 nights he stayed that way, till he prayed for help and promised to obey.

“Thank you, God, for saving me." said Jonah, "I will do what you say.”

The fish threw Jonah up  and tossed him on dry land. (Throw Jonah Lego man out of the container onto the dry floor.)

God said to Jonah, "I want them to repent, so go preach to Nineveh." And this time Jonah went.

Jonah told the people to repent. The people said sorry to God, turned from their bad ways and obeyed.

God forgave the people and they gave God their praise.

Say: “Have you ever done something wrong and then tried to cover it up or go hide in your room and hope that your mom and dad wouldn't get to mad when they found out? If you did, you were acting just like Jonah. It doesn't do any good to hide does it? Sooner or later you have to face up to what you did.”

Say: “You may be able to hide things from your parents and friends, but you can't hide them from God. The Bible says, "Nothing in all creation can hide from him. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes. This is the God to whom we must explain all that we have done."

Say: “When you do something wrong, instead of trying to forget about it, or hiding from it, God wants you to tell him about it, and to ask him for forgiveness. The Bible tells us that, "If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong." 1 John 1:9. So instead of trying to hide your sins from God, tell God what you did wrong and he will forgive you.”

Ask the children to recite it one-by-one Acts 5:29 “We must obey God”.

Obedience Song 1
Obedience is the very best way
To show that you believe
Doing exactly what the Lord commands and doing it happily
Action is the key
Do it immediately
And joy you will receive

Obedience is the very best way
To show that you believe
O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E
Obedience is the very best way
To show that you believe

Obedience Song 2
Obedience is listening attentively,
Obedience will take instructions joyfully,
Obedience heeds wishes of authority,
And obedience will follow orders instantly,

For when I am busy at my work or play,
And someone calls my name,
I'll answer right away,
I'll be ready with a smile
To go the extra mile,
As soon as I can say "Yes sir," Yes ma'am"

Obey, obey

We can choose to follow all His rules

We will obey
