Who did Better Lot or his Daughters?
Let us visit Genesis 19, the story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Two incidents appear more vivid than the others.
The decision of Lot is to offer his two virgin daughters to be raped by a mob in place of the two visiting angels who had been sent by God to rescue him (Gen 19v8).
Secondly, Lot’s two daughters decided to sleep with their father because they assumed no man on earth would come to them (Gen 19v31).

Which of these two decisions were right?
Were they knowledge-based decisions?.
How far you go in life depends on the knowledge of God you have.
What motivated him to make that offer?
Was he so concerned about his visitors that he did not mind his own daughters being destroyed by being gang-raped?
Do you always feel pressured to help at the risk of hurting your family? These two men were not mere mortal men, they were angels on assignment.
Did Lot not know they were sent by the Almighty God?
His decision to offer his daughters to please those men was not based on sound knowledge nor the power behind the mission.
Thank God, the angels intervened by causing the city’s men to go blind, and his plan was not implemented.
Again we see these daughters, who could be described as the circumstantial victims of the first incident, made decisions based on what they thought was their problem.
Was that the right decision to take?
How knowledgeable were they about the “earth “and the availability of men anyway.
Unlike the first incident, there were no timely interventions to prevent them from carrying out their decisions, which had grave consequences. God had to instruct that these two races resulting from the incest (Moabites and Ammonites) be utterly destroyed from the earth.
Looking at these two situations:
What are you passing through that is pressurizing you to make decisions hastily?
