So many wonderful examples of people who wanted to check out but whom God never checked out on. Hope this wins something. You did a great job.
This is excellent writing. I love the concept of looking at those who checked out on their responsibilities, and you clearly show the heart of each person, their 'excuse' for their actions. Really well done.
Very creative use of the topic choice. I am glad God never gives up on us, inspite of our choices.
Good job at helping us to get in the heads of these biblical people.

I wonder if it would be more effective for the fourth scenario to be a person who chose NOT to check out--or even a contemporary person with similar thoughts, but listening to the voice of God. As it is, you leave the reader with a 'downer' feeling. FYI--your spell checker changed "Ninevites" to "nineties".

You chose some varied people, with very different circumstances--something for everyone, and that's good!
