Interesting Bible reading today. Don't recall seeing this before about Lot. Remember? Abraham's nephew who lived in Sodom (or Gomorrah.) He was the only righteous one in those cities and so his life was spared. But the Bible tells us this about him...
7 But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him. 8 Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day. (2 Peter 2)
Lot lived in the most evil cities ever recorded. Think of the things he must have seen every day. Think of the atrocities. He lived among people that couldn't be reasoned with. In my opinion, he's lucky they didn't kill him.
This passage tells us he was sick of the immorality around him, but it goes one step further. It says he was "tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day."
May we be the kind of people who get sick of the immorality that surrounds us. May we be the kind of people who NEVER get USED to sinful behavior. May we be the kind of people who still cry when they see the evening news. May we be tormented in our souls by the wickedness around us...not because we are better, but because we love the things God loves.
