Fear Based Decisiona

I read this morning about Lot in Genesis after the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah. As a result, Lot was afraid & lived in a cave with his daughters. His daughters had lost their husbands in the destruction of Sodom & they concluded that there weren’t any men through whom they could perpetuate their family. From this, they decided to get their dad drunk & get pregnant by him. As a result, they had 2 boys – Moab & Ammon.
Whenever I hear this story it just seems totally crazy until I noticed this morning that Lot was afraid & decided to live in a cave. When we make decisions controlled by fear, the outcomes undercut our potential & distort the results that we could have in our lives. We’re supposed to fear & honor God – the end.
