Do Not Linger by Lloyd Mohrlock

“And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand

and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hands of his

two daughters…and they brought him forth, and set him

before the city.”

To linger means to stay in a place longer than necessary because of reluctance to leave. Today’s text reveals the nonchalance of Lot and his family in the face of impending danger to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Danger was looming, yet they lingered. Angels came to rescue them, and yet they lingered. It took extra effort to pull them away from the calamity that would have befallen them.

Friends, are you lingering in sin and disobedience in spite of God’s persistent warnings to you to repent?

Backslider, do you take God’s grace for granted and linger still in sin? Why linger in the company of bad friends and associations when you know that evil communication corrupts manners?

Delay is dangerous. The wife of Lot still perished because her heart remained unrepentant.
