What to Do About Self-Inflicted Trouble

December 13th, 2021

Have you ever done something that ended up putting you in a very bad spot? It may have been a something done on the fly without thinking, or maybe you actually had been thinking about it for a while. Either way, once the decision was made, the consequences were set in motion.

Whether we’re living contrary to biblical principles or just being too careless in daily decisions, we could be asking for our own version of the Jonah Journey, also known as the Fish Belly Tour. It’s not a pleasure trip.

Making mistakes is part of learning and growing, but sometimes we’re making them too frequently, and this can be very costly to us in more ways than one. Relationships may be damaged, along with our reputations and our testimonies. It’s common to have days when we just don’t feel like paying attention to our every move, but the reality is this: a lack of alertness can cost us more than we’re ready to pay.

There were people in the Bible who got themselves into trouble, and the one that we’ll study in this episode is Jonah. Let’s learn three things from the life of a man who spent some time out in the belly of a whale. Jonah’s example has several built-in lessons that can help us when we’ve gotten ourselves into trouble.
