Genesis 19:17-38

Read Genesis 19:17-38 – Continuing on in vs :17, “The angel exclaims, ‘Escape with your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain, lest you be destroyed.'”

That does not sound wishy-washy to me, yet again, Lot wants to compromise. The angel grants him favor. Destruction rains down as they set foot in Zoar, and Mrs Lot looks back. She becomes a pillar of salt, forever cautioning humanity DO NOT LOOK BACK LONGINGLY ON SIN. 

Lot and the girls wind up living isolated in a mountain cave.  The daughters come up with a vile plot to secure offspring by Lot…. Perhaps believing they were the only people on earth, but without any indication they sought the LORD… Their babies would forever be at war with Israel.   Moab fathers the Moabites, and Ben-Ammi the Ammonites.

Beloved, may God speak to your heart through these broken people. Lot shows us our influence is important, for better or worse. We see how enviornment can drag one’s morals down. Lot’s daughters teach us the perils of making life choices without Jesus. What else did you take away from these cautionary events?🤔🙏❤📖❤🙏🥰
