Where Are You Headed? Where are you and your family headed? Because we live in the midst of a humanist society that rejects God and His infallible truths, we must constantly guard against being subtly assimilated into the culture. Even righteous people can be fooled.
Lot was a righteous man but the Bible says he “pitched his tent toward Sodom” Genesis 13:12 “Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.” He pointed the direction of his home toward this evil place. He could have pitched his home toward the mountains and been drawn towards God. What we look on, read, spend most of our time on, and think about is what we will become. Soon Lot and his family landed up living in Sodom Genesis 14:12 “And they took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.” Then we read of how he is totally entrenched in the city life. He is an elder in the Gate of Sodom Genesis 19:1 “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom; and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.”
He was still a righteous man who trusted in God, but he lost most of his family! When he tried to warn his sons in law, sons, and daughters to run from the coming judgment, they thought he was crazy. They were entrenched in the culture-and were destroyed. Read Genesis 19:12-28
What is the passion and direction of you and your family? The direction you are pointed is where you will end. Keep pointed towards God’s ways.
