Lot's Wife

Post  Irv Everett on Wed 04 Mar 2009, 2:53 pm

Lot’s Wife



Her name is not mentioned in God’s Holy Book

And I wondered why it wasn’t; so I went to take a look

The scriptures say her husband, was a godly man

And her uncle was well known, as Faithful Abraham



But in those days religion, was rare upon this earth

With no Bibles or ministers, no missionaries nor church

So the knowledge of God, was confined to a favored few

And she’d seen the faith and prayers, of this righteous two



She’d seen God’s ruling principles, governing their lives

Their love for God was no secret; not something they’d hide

Yet knowing Abraham and observing Lot’s devotions

Wouldn’t get her closer to God; by just going through the motions



Her eyes were not on God; her conscience never aroused

Even though she saw the angels, dealing with the Sodom’s crowd

Even through the warnings, as angels lead her by the hand

She died graceless and godless, looking back to her homeland



So Jesus cries out to us, “Remember Lot’s wife”

To search our souls for the Holy Spirit; to turn about our life

For what good is privilege, if we have not God’s grace

Being mindful of Lot’s wife; might save us from Hell’s face

You have the blessing of God to preach with a style. Yes you are right that we should remember all those who are mentioned in the Bible who lost their souls and their story in mentioned for us to learn from them. Blessings in Jesus name.

I think that you can write a poetic commentary on the Bible because it is so easy to understand. Keep sharing and blessing us.

Worth remembering!

Great to have you back, Irv, and with a seasoned pen and time echo of the demise of Lot's wife from looking back.

Thank you for sharing.

May it ring in our ears, so that we will not look back after putting our hands to the plough.

Thank you both Fenny and Daniel, it is good to be back; sometimes we stumble and sometimes we go beyond the hedge; I lost my place for a little bit. But God has this way of leading us back to where He would like for us to be, Thanks again for your comments and may God continue to bless you both with His love, Irv
