Genesis 19:26 ” But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.”

Even though she had been specifically warned of doing it…the draw of her old life style was too much. The longing of their amassed wealth, security, and comfort proved to be too much for Lot’s wife to walk away from. And her trust in God…that He’d take care for them…vacillated the farther they fled from the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Finally, her uncertainty and doubt that God could really do what He promised, coupled with her desires and appetites for things of the past became too much…and she did exactly what she had been warned not to do. Too many times we too look back at our past with longing…thinking about its comfort and ease simply because it’s what we know and we’re used to it…but God doesn’t want us to go back to what we once were…when we can become something brand new.
