Hello all, I need to find a Bible story for a lesson that I'm teaching on insanity in a Bible-based 12-step recovery program. I'm referring to the literal definition of insanity, "doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result." I'm wondering if there is a story in the Bible that illustrates this, like repeated disobedience to God with ultimate redemption? All the stories I know of have a simple arc, like the protagonist disobeys God, is punished, learns his lesson and obeys God. But I'm looking for a story of disobedience, punishment, disobedience, punishment, disobedience, etc., and finally the protagonist learns from his mistake and decides to obey God. Is there a story like this in the Bible?
