"Remember Lot's wife." (Luke 17:32)
Today's Morsel: Every time I read this passage of scripture, I am amazed as to why when Jesus was teaching about His return, He out of know where inserted this comment to His hearers to remember Lot's wife. Was it to remind them to never look back to the world once they came out? Was it to remind them to stay focused on where they are headed? Or was it to let them know that when people look back they will become hardened and of no use for the kingdom? I think He wanted them to understand the latter, as when most people look back to the world, they often times find that they lose everything, and many that they even lose their life both natural and spiritually. Once we have tasted of the heavenly gift, and are made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if you fall away, it is going to hard to recover. Salt is good for you, but not when it is in the state as Lot's wife was.
Sing: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of this earth will go strangely dim, in the light of his glory and grace.
Thought for Today: Sin will always try to pull at your heart.
