In His Word Day 6

Something New: Gen 18:12 So she laughed silently to herself and said, “How could a worn-out woman like me enjoy such pleasure, especially when my master—my husband—is also so old?” I hadn't noticed "My Master- My Husband before"

Something Different: (This is when God sent the two angels to Lot to rescue him before he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
Gen 19:8 Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do with them as you wish. But please, leave these men alone, for they are my guests and are under my protection.”

That sounds horrible to us in this time, however it shows his reverence for the Lord. and then in vs 12 Meanwhile, the angels questioned Lot. “Do you have any other relatives here in the city?” they asked. “Get them out of this place—your sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else. Do you see sons-in-laws? Back in that day if you were engaged it was as if you were already married, you were spoken for, betrothed. I learned about this last year and so these verses appeared to me with different meaning.

What to apply: Gen 19:26 But Lot’s wife looked back as she was following behind him, and she turned into a pillar of salt.
When God rescues us from sin or destruction, whatever that may me, don't look back, don't go back. I'm assuming that Lot's wife looking back was a implication she was reminiscent which I'm sure was not the heart attitude God wanted.

Have a great day
