I’m gonna be real – this was a tough chapter to read.

Today, we’re reading Genesis 19 from the New Living Translation.

If you compare Abraham and Lot, you’ll see that Abraham lived apart from the culture – in a tent. Lot lived with the culture – sitting at the city entrance – and calling the men of the city his “brothers.” He was even willing to sacrifice his daughters to appease them. It appears that Sodom had a strong influence on their family. Lot was hesitant to leave, his wife looked back, and his daughters seem to have picked up a rather warped worldview.

Ezekiel 16:49 says this – “Sodom’s sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness…”

It is a terrible story of prideful men with no accountability, doing whatever they wanted with whomever they wanted.

The people we choose as our influencers matter. The people our kids choose as their influencers matter.

That said, here’s an interesting connection:

The child that Lot had with his oldest daughter was named Moab. While the Moabites became Israel’s enemies, there was one Moabite woman many years later named Ruth.

Ruth (who had been widowed) followed her mother-in-law back to the land of Judah, saying “your people will be my people, and your God will by my God.” She met a man named Boaz, whom she married. Boaz & Ruth had a child named Obed. Obed had a child named Jesse. And Jesse became the father of King David. Eventually from this family with a Moabite mother, the Messiah would come – Jesus.
