You know, they were blood kin and lived in the same country at the same time, and were in the same business.
But here is a part of the difference between them. Abraham commanded his house. Lot’s house commanded him. Abraham had a house of obedience. Lot had a house of disobedience.
Abraham pitched his tents toward Jerusalem. Lot pitched his tents toward Sodom.
Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked toward the mountains. Lot lifted up his eyes and looked toward the plains of Jordan.
Abraham went to the mountain and met God and blessed the world. Lot went to Sodom and well-nigh disgraced the human family.
Abraham chose grace. Lot chose grass.
And grace and grass tell the difference between the two men.
