SALTY OLD GAL
The other evening as we were pouring
salt on our corn on the cob and pork chops,
we remembered, Lot's wife (Genesis 19).
Now, there was a salty old gal.
Lot, his wife, and two daughters were permitted
to leave the forewarned city of Sodom prior to
the Lord destroying its unrighteous inhabitants.
Upon leaving Sodom, Lot's family was told
not to look back upon the city.
Unfortunately, Lot's wife couldn't resist
a backward glance at the city and life she
was leaving behind.
And so, Lot's wife was turned into a pillar
Don't turn back. No backward glances.
Keep going forward in the Lord.
This, for many of us, has been the difficult
task in our Christian walk.
After all, Sodom has always inticingly beckoned,
and beckons us still.
Be careful when it comes to backward glances.
They could be fatal.
