A Little Thing


image

Remember Lot’s wife.

—Luke 17:32

It doesn’t seem fair. All Lot’s wife did was take one little look behind her. What’s the big deal?

image

That look was a little thing, but it told of proud unbelief in Lot’s wife. She seemed to doubt whether God was really going to destroy Sodom: she appeared not to believe there was any danger, or any need for such hasty flight. But without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). The moment a man begins to think he knows better than God, and that God does not mean anything when He threatens, his soul is in great danger. When we cannot see the reason of God’s dealings, our duty is to hold our peace and believe.

—J. C. Ryle, Holiness (Banner of Truth, 2014), 225.
