The Apostle Paul did some terrible things before his Damascus Road experience with Jesus. In writing to his son in the faith Timothy, Paul recounts his bad decisions, and then Paul tells of the boundless grace of God.

Paul, formerly known as Saul, had persecuted the new church with zeal, watching with glee as Stephen was stoned. Then his conversion on the Damascus Road changed everything. How did he later comprehend his violent actions?

Bad decisions have bad consequences, often affecting the lives of those close to us. How do we unravel the messes we make when we do not follow God’s guidance? How do we handle the problems we initiated before we came to Christ?

King Asa was faithful to God, except at the end of his life. Sadly, his finish line was marred by the consequences of a bad choice. What can we learn from one man’s failure? Can we conclude the race of life well?

At the end of his reign, King Asa’s long faithfulness to God crumbled. He bribed a nearby King with the temple’s gold and silver. Politics can corrupt the best of men, and Asa was no exception.

All the webs we weave through deception entangle us in unintended consequences. One good king of God’s people found this out the hard way, and he failed near the finish line, leaving Israel in a state of war.

Jonah ran from God’s command to preach in Nineveh. But he could not outrun God, who appointed some “persuaders” to change Jonah’s mind: a great fish, a plant, a worm, and a scorching east wind.

Jonah was told by God to preach to people he did not like. His attempt to flee brought him face to face with the God of second chances, the God whose will would ultimately be done.

God gave a command to a prophet, and the prophet took an amazing journey to avoid that obligation. Jonah was told to preach to the people of Nineveh, but he refused. We can learn a lot by considering God’s response to Jonah’s obstinance.

King David made an impulsive choice regarding Bathsheba, and a pregnancy resulted. Then, he orchestrated a cover-up, in which her husband was killed to hide the sin. For David, and for us, cover-ups don’t work. The outcome involved severe temporal judgment.
