Genesis 19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
Imagine being married to the man of God, Lot. He didn’t do to good in this part of his life but in the New Testament we find out that he was just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked.
Not only was she married to Lot but had been in Abraham’s family. She knew what it was to walk with men of God but something goes wrong. She doesn’t believe from the heart. She isn’t excited about the things of God.
She has allowed the world to take over her heart and life.
Lot has failed in the leadership of his family.
As they leave the city she looks back and turns to a block of salt. What a way to end your life after having lived with the greatest men of God of your time.
What an embarrassment for the man of God that his wife would have such a worldly heart.
This reminds me to love my wife today. It reminds me that I need to be careful to set a good example, be a good leader, and teach her the things of God.
The last thing I want is a salty woman like Lot’s wife!
