‘Do Not Look Back’

By Elizabeth Prata

Embedded within Jesus’s lengthy speech on the Day of the Lord, He said,

Remember Lot’s wife. (Luke 17:32)

Remember Lot’s wife – See Genesis 19:26. She looked back – she delayed – perhaps she desired to take something with her, and God made her a monument of his displeasure. Jesus directed his disciples, when they saw the calamities coming upon the Jews, to flee to the mountains, Matthew 24:16. He here charges them to be in haste – not to look back – not to delay – but to escape quickly, and to remember that by delaying the wife of Lot lost her life. ~Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
