In the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, God could not find even ten people in the city of Sodom who were righteous and He therefore destroyed the cities. Before destroying them, He sent two messengers to Lot and his family to warn them and lead them out of the city. As they were leaving, Lot’s wife disregarded the instruction of God’s messengers and looked back as the city was being destroyed. Because she looked back she lost her life. There are times in our life when God rescues us from the destruction we have been living in, but it is so very tempting sometimes to simply look back. When we look back, it is as if we are playing with fire; we will get burned. Rather than looking back, may we look forward and press on towards the goal that has been set for us in Christ Jesus.
