The Lingering Effects of Sin (Gen 19:15-38)

Our focus shall be upon the effect on a family when the head of the household is not following God single-heartedly. First, we shall see the effect this had on Lot himself. The draw of the world and the way he had already compromised with it had so affected him that he had difficulty leaving it behind. Then there is Lot’s wife. She also had difficulty leaving the sinful city behind, and for that her life was taken from her. At this point the text will take a brief detour to make mention of Abraham. There we shall see the value of a godly, praying man. The narrative then returns to the lingering effect of sin upon Lot’s daughters.
