PITCHING YOUR TENT

INTRODUCTION: THE BOOK OF GENESIS IS RICH AND SOMETIMES COMPLEX. IT COULD BE TITLED A BOOK OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN GOD AND MAN AND MAN-TO-MAN RELATIONSHIPS.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: GENESIS 13:12 (NKJV) ABRAM DWELT IN THE LAND OF CANAAN, AND LOT DWELT IN THE CITIES OF THE PLAIN AND PITCHED (HIS) TENT EVEN AS FAR AS SODOM.

SODOM HAD A REPUTATION AS THE SIN CAPITAL OF THE AREA. ANYTHING GOES BEST DESCRIBED IT. ABRAHAM (ABRAM) AND HIS NEPHEW LOT, SUCCESSFUL HERDSMEN, DISAGREED ON WHERE TO GRAZE THEIR HERDS. ABRAHAM CONCEDED TO LOT WHO CHOSE SODOM. GENESIS 13:13 (NKJV) BUT THE MEN OF SODOM WERE EXCEEDINGLY WICKED AND SINFUL AGAINST THE LORD.

MAKING DECISIONS BASED SOLELY ON EXTERNAL EXPERIENCES IS DANGEROUS. LOT’S PATH TO SODOM APPEARS RIGHT, BUT IT ALMOST COST HIM HIS LIFE. PROVERBS 14: 12 (NKJV) THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT TO A MAN, BUT ITS END IS THE WAY OF DEATH. LOT PERCEIVED GREAT GAIN IN HIS OWN MIND. IMPULSIVENESS, GREEDINESS, STRIFE AND THOUGHTLESSNESS PREVAILED. DECLINE USUALLY PROGRESSES GRADUALLY. THE WORLD IS FULL OF LOTS! REFERENCE: GENESIS 18:20, ISAIAH 3:9, PROVERBS 21:29

APPLICATION: IN ANY GIVEN SITUATION, WHAT YOU ARE DETERMINES WHAT YOU SEE, AND WHAT YOU SEE DETERMINES WHAT YOU DO! BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU PITCH YOU TENT!
