The Story Of Lot
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Story of Lot

From the Bible, there’s a

lesson to be taught:

The story of Abram and

his nephew Lot.

Their herdsman argued.

To separate they did choose.

But Lot was the one

who really did lose.

He chose the city of Sodom—

filled with wickedness and sin.

Grieving the heart of God once again.

To live in this city was his

choice—his own fault.

It was his wife that turned

into a pillar of salt.

He later sinned with his two

daughters whom each had a boy.

But it was Lot who was

robbed of a Godly joy.

Please watch where you

go and what you say.

You’re to represent

Christ every day!

Evil company corrupts good morals—

your spiritual life will rot.

Ending up in compromise—

as did Lot!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
