´╗┐But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.
Jonah 1:3 (NIV)

Today we visit Jaffa, Israel formerly known as Joppa, where Jonah disobeyed the Lord and was swallowed by a whale! May this graphic reminder keep us motivated to be obedient!

The Daily Verse will be traveling to Israel over the next two weeks and we’ll be documenting our travels and discoveries on our Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter! We welcome you to join in on the adventure!
