Bigger Than Me

Jonah: The Roadmap To Happiness, Part 6

About the episode

How can we learn the roadmap to happiness from the story of Jonah? It all starts with where we get our purpose. Like Jonah, we all have the opportunity to be “inside the fish” – to look at our lives seriously and see where we are and where we’re headed. Are we trying to get our purpose from status, others’ approval, or money? Or will we grab hold of the vision God has for our lives that is so much bigger than us?
