Very interestingly God finally agreed with Abraham to spare the cities if only ten righteous people could be found. Scripture mentions ten members in Lot's family. Did Abraham know how many were in Lot's family? Most probably he did. Did Abraham assume that all in Lot's family were righteous? Maybe. Just a coincidence, perhaps, perhaps not, but it is something to meditate on.
One good way to meditate on scripture is ask yourself questions and/or apply the scripture personally to your own life. Based on the scripture discussed above ten possibilities for meditation are identified to aid and encourage you to meditate on God's Word.
First, why did Abraham stop interceding and/or bargaining with the Lord at ten righteous? Did he know something we didn't, or not?
Second, Why in the world didn't Lot tell his sons of the impending wrath from God on the city of Sodom? Or did he? Were they immersed in the sins of the city to such a degree that talking to them would be useless? Were they part of the wicked mob outside Lot's house?
Third, If we believe that the days of the Son of man are near and the times should be similar to the times of Lot do we have loved ones that need prompting to prepare to escape the wrath that will shortly engulf the world? Will our warning seem as mocking to them also? Why does such information seem to mock a person?
Fourth, do we have family or loved ones that are immersed in the evil culture today as Lot's sons might have been? Are we to going to ignore them as the wrath approaches? If not how do we reach them?
Fifth, if the times that precede a coming of God's wrath are similar, will fire fall on our country (and others) as it did in the days of Lot? At the rapture of the church will some folks have to be literally dragged from the earth as Lot was dragged from Sodom?
Sixth, are the sins of Sodom similar to what we see around us in the United States? What were the sins of Sodom?
Seventh, Am I like Lot in any way? Is that good? Is that bad?
Eighth, what were the end results of Lot's decisions regarding living in Sodom? What prompted his decisions? How do my decisions affect those in my sphere of influence?
Ninth, where else in scripture is Lot mentioned?
Tenth, Can I intercede for my country, state, and/or city as Abraham did for the cities of the plain?
