RIGHTEOUS JUDGE

When Abram told Lot to chose which way he wanted to go in the land, the Bible says Lot pitched his tent toward Sodom. What does that mean? He set his face toward the wicked men of Sodom and turned his back on God. Over the years he moved closer and closer to Sodom, until finally he was living in Sodom and was one of the highly esteemed men that "sat in the gate". God revealed to Abram that He was going to destroy Sodom and all the surrounding towns. Abram prayed for Sodom and for Lot. In the prayer he said to God that he knew God was a righteous judge and He would do right where Lot was concerned. Abram prayed and God heard and remembered his prayer. He brought Lot, his wife, and two daughters out of Sodom before it was destroyed. We should pray for those who have made wrong choices and pray that God, our Father, will please help us all to make wise choices in life.
