Grass or Grace
“And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw that the Jordan Valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zoar. (This was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) So Lot chose for himself the Jordan Valley…” (Genesis 13:10,11)
“Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?” A cynical question…unless God is the one that asks it.
Lot cast his eyes on the steppes of Sodom, but he could not see it’s corruption. He “chose for himself” and lost everything worth having (Genesis 14:1-12)..
Abraham let God choose and got everything in the end (Genesis 13:14-18). God’s will is always better than trusting our lying eyes.
