Genesis 19:14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
Lot had lived like he didn’t believe God for so long that his own family didn’t believe him when he said that God was going to do something. He had lost the respect of his sons in laws and obviously of his daughters.
His family, daughters, sons in laws, and possibly grandsons will die when the Lord destroys the city. He can do nothing to help them because they no longer respect him. What a sad commentary!
Could it be that you are living in such a way that you are losing the respect of your family? Could it be that your love for the Lord Jesus doesn’t show forth enough for them to believe that you do?
The time will come when your family will need your spiritual leadership. Live in such a way that they will respect your leadership. Be sure that they know that you know God.
