While we are never told her name, she has been known for 3,500 year or so, to the time of Abraham. The Bible even encourages us to remember her. She is known as “Lot’s wife” and other than the recommendation to remember her, she is only mentioned in three verses, all in just one chapter of the Bible.
Unfortunately what she is remembered for is not flattering. We are encouraged to remember her as a warning for us not to make the same mistake that she made. It is not for one final act that we are to remember, but the motives and reason she made that fatal mistake. Her action and what caused her to do such an unwise thing is a lesson for us all.
Her whole life is summed up in just one look. A look can be very revealing of where our hearts are. What are we looking at? What has our attention? At what are we ogling (or googling)?
