Lot's Discovery

By Mary Vee

We left our story on Tuesday with Lot's wife taking a peek back at Sodom, the city she loved.
The family arrived in Zoar and fell to the ground out of breath. They weren't use to exercise and Lot was getting old.
Relieved his family was safe, he found a spot with soft green grass. His family joined him. Before he knew it, he fell asleep.
Lot woke sometime later and saw his girls sleeping. He looked around and didn't see his wife.
"Girls, wake up. Where's your mother?"
The girls helped him search.
Maybe she walked to the stores. They searched in the city square, but couldn't find her.
As they ran from store to store, Lot saw kids stealing, a gang beating an old man, and other terrible sins that he didn't want to say. This city reminded him of Sodom.
After searching the last store inside the city, they ran outside the city wall. Lot's daughter pointed to a strange site. A statue, made of salt, faced the city of Sodom. It had a hand raised to block sun from it's eyes.
Lot walked closer and gasped. It was his wife!
"Oh my dear wife, why did you look back?" He cried and hugged his daughters.
Suddenly a loud bang came from inside the city.
Lot began to shake. He looked back at the city gate and saw three men with clubs in their hands.
"That's it. We're not staying here girls. This city is as bad as Sodom and Gomorrah. Who knows if God may decide to destroy it as well."
Lot and his two daughters left Zoar. They hiked up the closest mountain and found a big, quiet cave. It looked clean and had big flat boulders that could be used for beds and a table.
"This is where the angel told us to go. I should have listened the first time."
A tear dripped down his cheek.
The angels told Lot to go live in a cave in the mountains. What do you think it would be like to live in a cave? How would the story have been different if Lot went the cave instead of going to Zoar? Click on the comment button to tell us what you think.

  1. It would be dark and cold in a cave. There might be bears or bats. There are no lights, and we would hear water dripping.

    The story might have been different if Lot went directly to the cave because maybe his wife wouldn't have looked back. We should obey God all the time.

  2. What a great thought, Kindergarten class!
    If Lot had obeyed God the first time, maybe she wouldn't have looked back.
    Thanks for sharing your good thoughts:)
    Looking forward to your next visit.
