Gen 19:17 & 26 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Luke 17:32-33 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.

God commanded Lot and his family to run from Sodom and do not turn back to look at the city. Lot and his family once occupied the city of Sodom, is no more safe for his family. While they are fleeing, Lot’s wife turned back and became a pillar of salt. What can we learn from here? We should not turn back and look at things, which is not the will of God for our life like Lot’s wife. For example if God wants to take you out from one fellowship and plant in another fellowship according to His will, then however good that fellowship looks for us we should leave that and join the new fellowship that God wants us to be. This could be applied for our job, relationships, church, ministry or other church related activities. We should not look back at the good things, which are not under the will of God for us anymore. This is one hard lesson that we need to learn, if we want to be in the will of God and go forth for the work of God in His kingdom.
