We’ve all felt that tug. The one that is trying to pull us away from what we know is right. The tug that makes worldly things so enticing. The tug that can cost us everything.
Lot’s wife loved the life she was living in Sodom. Lot was highly esteemed, and being his wife gave her the connections she needed to be somebody. Yes, she believed in God, but she wasn’t going to sacrifice good times and popularity for God’s Kingdom. The world reigned over her. This is the epitome of the “Do You” attitude that is running rampant amongst society right now, and it is still as dangerous today as it was in the days of Lot.
Be careful which direction you are being pulled toward. When things of this world start having more authority over you than God does, it’s time to step back and examine your heart.
Love God more than the tug, and when He tells you not to look back – Don’t. Look. Back.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other You cannot serve God and wealth.” – Matthew 6:24
