How to make a bad decision…or not

We all want to make the right decisions for our lives and our families’ lives. So, why does it sometimes seem so difficult to do? If we don’t really know what a bad decision looks like on the front end, we fail to foresee the unwelcome consequences of our decisions. In this series, which runs from April 11 to May 2, we will explore four of the worst decisions made in the Bible. By learning how to make bad decisions, we’ll gain insight on how to make good ones.
