Destiny decisions

Read a post named because on my friend Andrews blog. Looking at the because behind our decisions.

I have been meditating on the life of Lot over the last few days. Orphaned a a young age seemingly adopted by his uncle Abraham. He lived in a covenant relationship with a man with a destiny. God was going to bless Abraham and his family.

After years of close relationship, blessing and growing wealth lot made a destiny defining decision. The because behind that decision is the key. (Genesis 13)

To secure his wealth he chose to break his relationship with his "adopted father" and set up home alongside what the bible describes as evil and wicked people. From that moment on Lots life seems to be afflicted by compromise.

Our choices matter and the because behind it matters more. God can deal with a wrong decision but we must check the why.
