Lot's Escape from Sodom
The escape of Lot and his family from Sodom. Original painting by Raphael (circa 1510).
Lot was raised by his uncle Abraham, one of the greatest role models of godly character the Bible has to offer. But once Lot parted ways with Abraham, he lost focus. Instead of imitating the faithfulness to God he'd witnessed in Abraham, Lot spent the rest of his life following the path of least resistance. Lot's story serves as a reminder to us today that when we let ourselves get caught up in sin and distracted by the world around us, we're on a fast track toward destruction.
