Genesis 19:30–38 (ESV)
Lot and His Daughters
30 Now Lot went up out of Zoar and lived in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to live in Zoar. So he lived in a cave with his two daughters. 31 And
the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is not a man on earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth. 32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie
with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.” 33 So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father. He did not know when she lay down or
when she arose.
34 The next day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father. Let us make him drink wine tonight also. Then
you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.” 35 So they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when
she lay down or when she arose. 36 Thus both the daughters of Lot became pregnant by their father. 37 The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab. He
is the father of the Moabites to this day. 38 The younger also bore a son and called his name Ben-ammi. He is the father of the Ammonites to this day.
Well, what can I say? When you have lived in Sodom and Gomorrah, this doesn’t sound so bad. But to God… it is sinful. The more you are
around sin, the more accustom and complacent you become with it. I hate eating liver. But if I ate it everyday, I’m sure I would come to love it. While liver is a matter of taste, sin is always hated by God. We are to turn from
our sinful ways and walk in the light of God, trusting in the faith he has given us.
I pray: O Lord, help me to amend my sinful ways and to turn
away… before I get used to it. Forgive me Lord! Amen.
