You have to consider that Lot not always lived in Sodom. When Abraham and Lot first split, the Bible says that Lot pitched his tent toward Sodom. Genesis 13:12. Please, don’t miss that; it says that Lot pitched his tent… toward Sodom. It wasn’t’ even in Sodom, it was just in that direction… But by the time we reach Genesis 19, the Bible says that Lot had a house in Sodom.

You know how this happened. He pitched his tent in the beginning, and as the chapter progress, he came closer, and closer, and by the time of this story in chapter 19, he is having a house inside.

If we modernize the story, we might say that Lot bought a nice two stories home in a nice subdivision of Sodom, maybe his children attending the public school of Sodom, maybe Lot have a business bank account and some commercial properties as investment opportunities in Sodom. Lot was a wealthy man. And I imagine when Lot saw everything that he had, a nice home, nice cars, prosperity in business, all of the themes that this life can offer, when the angels said “Lot, get out quickly, God will destroy the city”, the Bible says that Lot lingered.

And you know something friends? Sister White tells us that his wife SAW that… When Lot lingered, she was watching him closely!
