“Remember Lot’s wife.” – Luke 17:32
Three simple, sobering words.
Lot’s wife literally became the monument of an unbelieving soul. (Wisdom of Solomon 10:7)
She was warned not to look back. Her disobedience to that simple command showed her true heart and was consequently, fatal.
I am reminded of Jesus’s words in Luke 9:62,
“No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
