The Life of Lot

The Life of Lot



From the Bible, there’s a

Story that’s taught…

The story of Abram’s

 nephew Lot.


There was a path for Abram

and Lot to choose.

But Lot was the one

who really did lose.


He chose to live in Sodom!

Filled with wickedness and sin.

Grieving the heart of God once again!


God’s angels came, and led him out!

Before fire destroyed the city throughout!


To live in this city was his choice!

 His own fault!

Later, his wife turned

into a pillar of salt.


Please watch where you go!

And what you say!.

You’re called to represent Christ every day!


Evil company corrupts good morals!

Your spiritual life will rot!.

Please don’t live a life of 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!
