When we see others make choices that we know they will regret, we are not absolved from assisting them when they get into trouble. “I Told You So” does not bring comfort nor does it really bring satisfaction in the lives of the ones we care about. What does make a difference is our willingness to dive in and assist those that are hurting. Abram saved Lot—and in the process saved many others. He saved many folks that no knowledge of God. He left the enemy vanquished and the victims amazed.
In our lives, we have the same opportunity. We have to remain faithful and come along side even when it is inconvenient and when we feel the person has made a bad choice. As we are faithful and gracious, there is no telling how many lives will be affected and how many folks can be saved. That is God’s call. We simply muster our resources and fight the fight for our Lord. When we do—the result will amaze and perplex the enemy and the world. Help me, Lord to dive in and be ready to assist those that need you
God Bless You.
11 The four kings seized all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food; then they went away. 12 They also carried off Abram’s nephew Lot and his possessions, since he was living in Sodom.
13 A man who had escaped came and reported this to Abram the Hebrew. Now Abram was living near the great trees of Mamre the Amorite, a brother of Eshkol and Aner, all of whom were allied with Abram. 14 When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15 During the night Abram divided his men to attack them and he routed them, pursuing them as far as Hobah, north of Damascus. 16 He recovered all the goods and brought back his relative Lot and his possessions, together with the women and the other people.
17 After Abram returned from defeating Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him, the king of Sodom came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley).
