It's Day 21 and we're in Genesis 19.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Nothing really jumped out to me today.
- Verse 8 - Lot's offer is terrible. It is again important to remember that not everything described in the Bible is endorsed by God. We know from some other stories that Lot has been compromised morally by Sodom. Why would Lot make such an offer, though? Two main reasons: a. there was an enormous importance placed on hospitality and caring for your guests back then - to have his house guests harmed would have been (to his mind) the greatest of offenses; b. the obviously low moral standard in Sodom twisted his thinking in what was appropriate and what wasn't.
- Verse 26 - This was, apparently, a judgment from God.
- Verse 30-38 - This is pathetic and wrong. Again, not everything we read in the Bible is approved behavior. This is telling of how skewed these girls moral standards had gotten living in Sodom.
