LOOKING BACK

Genesis 19:26

 

But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

 

LESSON

 

Lot was a “righteous” man, though from the record of him in Genesis, we might doubt that. He chose to live as, what the New Testament calls, a “carnal” believer. First, he lifted up his eyes and saw Sodom. Then, he chose for himself. Then, he moved his tent as far as Sodom. Then, he

sat in the gate of Sodom as one of its judges. Then, he hesitated—as Sodom’s destruction loomed. Finally, he ended up committing incest with his daughters in a cave. How far it is possible for a believer to depart from God’s will when we keep making carnal decisions!

 

It is foolish for a believer to become attached to the things of this world. They will corrupt him, and God will destroy them swiftly and suddenly. There is many a man today who may be a saved man, but due to his lifestyle or where he lives, he loses his family, his influence, and his testimony.

 

Memory Verse: Jeremiah 29:11

 

The longer we keep looking back in the rearview mirror, it takes away from everything that’s moving forward.
