When many of us make the choice between righteousness and personal advantage we often find that the choice is not one of our own making rather the choice is suddenly thrust upon us.
As we contemplate Genesis 13:10 we should rightly wonder just how far Lot actually lifted up his eyes. The more we think about it we might conclude that he lifted up his eyes far enough to see just a little bit beyond the immediate.
Seeing the unseen promises of God leaves us living at peace as far as it is possible.
God’s covenant motivates Him. God has directed His behavior to His word and His word motivates all God ’s actions because God is glorified when He keeps His word.
We, like our father in the faith, our on our way. And thus far, the Lord has led us and He will lead us home.
In the promises that come to us in Christ, we have lost nothing and gained everything.
