Bible Lesson :
Acts 16 Paul and Salas singing in chains
Paul and Silas were placed into prison for doing God's work in the streets. A spirit was called out of a girl that was being used to make money. This angered the people and they made sure that Paul and Silas were put into jail. Not only into jail, but also chained to the jail. This was a moment many of us might have felt extreme sadness, and maybe we would have blamed God, but instead Paul and Silas choose to sing praises to God. They picked joy over sadness - and in doing so they were a wonderful example to the others around them, not to mention having them all released from the jail and having an entire family accepting of Christ in their lives!
