DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL.
Saturday 7 July, 2019.
Genesis 13:8-13; 19:12-23
CAN YOU TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT YOUR CHOICES ❓
One of the most painful discoveries a person can make is to find out that he is responsible for the word and tragedies that have befallen him because of a wrong choice. Every day, people make choices and every choice has a negative or positive impact on the maker. A choice can make a life; a choice can completely Mar a life. The choice made a lot according to our study text, will tell us more.
In Genesis 13, Abraham asked Lot, his nephew, to make a choice of destination between the right and left following the constant rift between their servants. Lot, who was a longer person, agreed to the proposal. He quickly “lifted up his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere…” and he “chose for himself all the plain…. and journeyed east” (verse 10-11). It is obvious that Lot’s choice was informed by materialism, if not greed. What his physical eyes saw caught his attraction.
However, the Bible records that the good looking path Lot had chosen was so because the Lord was yet to destroy it. The path Lot chose led to Sodom and Gomorrah, a city that was exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. Soon, the Lord “rained brimstone and fire on the Sodom and Gomorrah. He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities…” (19:24-25). And, Lot lost all but his life and two daughters.
Beloved, what informs your daily choices? Are you like Lot? Are you being pushed by materialism, greed, lust, who, spouse, children, rivals, position, etc., or God? Kindly read our key verse above again!
a choice can make a life; a choice can completely mar a life.
Father, please help me in my daily choice not to go astray or be moved by anyone or anything else except You.
