Just An Act Of Kindness


Even after the face off with the Kingpin Abraham, one would think he wasn't completely nice at heart...

It's safe to say Lot wasn't a ''bad guy'' even though he lived among terribly bad people in the bad city of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Where are you situated? Is it the original plan of God for you?

Lot wasn't destined to live in the land of Sodom and Gomorrah but greed and rebelliousness towards his uncle Abraham, made him to. More so, he (lot) was a distraction to Abraham towards actualizing destiny.

The name Lot means "veil". All through his stay with Abraham, he succeeded in continually coming in the way, hence, creating a tensed atmosphere that wasn't safe for Abraham to focus in the right direction in his walk with God; reason for their split.

The city and inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah weren't wiped away because of their many sins which Abraham once tried to mediate, they were wiped away because the people pulled the trigger by forcefully trying to rape the Angels of God. Distastefully, a homosexual rape was intended.

Anchor Scripture: {Genesis 19:1:3}
"The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening. Lot was sitting at the city gate. He saw them and said, "Please, my friends, come to my house and stay the night. Wash up. You can rise early and be on your way refreshed."
They said, "No, we'll sleep in the street,"
But he insisted, wouldn't take no for an answer; and they relented and went home with him. Lot fixed a hot meal for them and they ate."

*Kindly read (vs 4-29) to get the full account.

From the above anchor scripture, we see how Lot treated the angels to a good meal and sorted out their accommodation issue.

Lot's act of kindness exempted him from the calamity that befell the people of Sodom and Gomorrah when the angels struck down the city. His act of kindness earned him the liberty of even choosing where to run to for succor.

When the Sodomite men were carnally trying to get at the angels, Lot sacrificially attempted  to give up his two virgin daughters in exchange. Not only did he give the angels a comfortable place to rest their heads, a good meal, and provision to have a warm shower, he gave them security.

How sacrificial is your act of kindness? How satisfactory is your act of kindness? How selfless is your act of kindness?

Have a SWELL day Fam!
