Luke 17:32 – Remember Lot’s Wife

Luke 17:32
32
Remember Lot’s wife.

-The Lord has a remarkable way of saying so much while actually saying very little.  Consider this very striking warning from Jesus: Lot’s wife is perhaps the most telling example of the biblical teaching that “whosoever will seek to save his life shall lose it” (Luke 17:33) and we should never forget that.  What do you think was back in Sodom that drew her attention and compelled her to look back?  Perhaps she was simply reminiscing about the life she had to leave behind; maybe she had other family still in the city.  Whatever it was, her desire to hang onto that piece of the past for one more instant cost her everything.  Remember that.
