Lot's selfishness, misplaced priorities and spiritual dullness cause disaster. He and his family barely escape certain death because of God's amazing acts of mercy and grace. The lesson for us is to be vigilant, to keep our hearts pure and to focus our lives on God's plan and purposes.

Jesus says in Matthew 5:8: "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." In this new year, let us abandon the urgent for the important. Our hearts must be devoted, pliable and responsive. Jesus promises that the result of a devoted heart is joy, fulfillment and intimacy with God and others.
