Topic: Lot’s Rescue

Scripture: Genesis 19:15-16

When I read about Lot and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, I tend to think about Lot’s wife and her turning back just when salvation was in her grasp. The angels had brought the whole family to safety; all they had to do was follow God’s instruction not to turn back.

It sounds so easy. I wonder what was so important to Lot’s wife that she turned back? I’m sure that Lot was grateful to God and to the angels for rescuing him and his family and also saddened by the loss of his wife. We, too, have been rescued.

We have been rescued from the fear of death, from the effects of our sinfulness and from eternal damnation. We have chosen to follow our deliverer, our Savior, Jesus Christ. What is there in our lives that is so important to us that we risk losing it all?

Because we do turn back, just as Lot’s wife. We often return to old habits, old companions that lead us into sinful situations, old temptations that we think won’t entrap us. We choose to ignore what has been done for us.

Hopefully, we will have the sense to return to Christ, ask forgiveness, and work at moving toward a new way of living instead of returning to the past.

Prayer For Today
Forgiving and compassionate God, how often we ignore your commandments and follow our own ways instead of the way of your Son, Jesus. Give us the graces we need to do your will. Amen.
