When we run from God, as Jonah did:

 

1. It affects others. - Vss. 4-5 - The passengers, the cargo, and the ship itself were all affected by God's judgment of Jonah's sin.

 

2. It affects our testimony. - Vss. 6-10 - Jonah, the prophet of God, had to identify himself, and admit his own sin.

 

3. It affects ourselves. Vs. 5, 11-16
