                                                         TOPIC: REWARD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS


Memory verse:-"The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of
                      the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face
                      to the ground. "My lords,” he said, "please turn aside to your servant’s house. You
                      can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the
                      morning.” "No,” they answered, "we will spend the night in the square.” But he
                      insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a
                      meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed,
                      all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded  
                      the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring
                      them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”
                      Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my
                      friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never
                      slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with
                      them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection
                      of my roof.”
                                                                                                                               -Gen 19:1-8
We could see from this scripture that Abraham made a positive impact on Lot during their association; they all saw the need to entertain strangers. It was a righteous move for them. But sin blinded the eyes of the men of the city to the extent that they did not care who they slept with and want to sleep with. In as much evil pays evil, righteousness also pays righteous. There was a reward for the righteous move of Lot, a blessing of deliverance from destruction which extended to his family as well. Meaning that what we do as parents today its blessings will affect our children’s tomorrow. Lot was willing to give out his daughters in exchange for the lives of the two visitors. What a challenge? I believe the daughters would be surprised about Lot’s move. Lot’s heart of love and sacrifice for strangers was great. We need such heart in our Christian life
Prayer:-pray for a heart of love and sacrifice
What to meditate on:
What can you exchange for the life of a stranger?
