- Luke 17:28-32
Sometimes the things of this life, as innocent as they may seem, trap people in sin to the extent that they lose their souls and must face the judgment of God just as Lot’s wife did. God is always faithful in giving timely warnings. There are many instances in the Bible where He warned men of impending judgment. God has also warned us in these days of the wrath that is to come upon the ungodly if they do not repent.
- Why did the Lord say the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were to be destroyed? See Genesis 18:20.

- Why do you feel Lot and his wife lingered before leaving Sodom?
- Once Lot and his family were outside the city of Sodom, what were they told? How soon after they left the city did the fire and brimstone fall? See Luke 17:29.
- What happened to Lot’s wife? Make a parallel between this event and the results which occur when one whom God has delivered looks back to the world.
