God can make even a bad thing turn into a good thing.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about a bad day Paul and Silas had but then it became a good day. Paul and Silas were traveling around teaching people about Jesus. Some people didn’t like the message that Paul and Silas were teaching. They didn’t know who Jesus was and they didn’t care to know him, either. A mob of people decided to turn on Paul and Silas and threw them into jail. The jailer in charge was told not to let them out. This was the start of the bad day. But Paul and Silas didn’t let jail bring them down. In fact, they started singing songs to God while they sat in their cell chained up! Then, all of a sudden, an earthquake occurred breaking the chains off all the prisoners and the doors to the jail cells opened up. This was the start of the good day! Now, Paul and Silas could’ve run out of jail to freedom but they didn’t. They stayed to share Jesus with the jailer. He and all his family ended up putting their trust in Jesus! So, remember, sometimes a bad day can turn out to be a good day.
