Genesis 19 - Key

v20

Behold now, this city [is] near to flee unto, and it [is] a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, ([is] it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

I wonder if staying in Zoar instead of fleeing to the mountains had anything to do with Lot's wife looking back? I wonder if it made the difference that he lost his wife. Later, Lot didn't even end up staying in that city. He fled to the mountains anyway when he was scared because saw how the Lord really destroyed the region.

Sometimes we do the same thing with sin that Lot did with the city of Zoar. We say, don't destroy that one, Lord; isn't it just a little one? We shouldn't excuse sins because we think they're little.

Application

When I have a problem like not getting up on time, I'll focus on getting that problem beat. I won't just let it escape, because it's a little thing.
