In the first chapter of this staple of every Sunday School curriculum, we dig a little deeper and find five lessons for our lives. 1) God often calls us to do hard things. 2) If you want to run away form God, there will always be a boat ready for you. 3) Peace is not proof of God's will in your life. 4) Your sin always affects others. 5) If you are rowing against God, you won't get anywhere.
