I wasn’t going to write today – the lock down is over (sort of), but I was reading the bible and I felt compared to share. In particular I was reading Luke… I feel that in past lives I knew Luke, so his writings are very familiar to me. He was a good friend to the women around Jesus and as a physician was a respected member of society, educated when most in that era were not, so his letters are as factual as he can report them.
What is one of the the shortest verses in the bible? Luke Chapter 17 Verse 32 – with only three words “REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE”
If you have read the bible and know about the characters in the bible you will know that there about 170 women portrayed within its pages. Long stories, short stories, but there is only ONE whom we are told to REMEMBER – and in Chapter 17 verse 32, he reports that Jesus said “REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE”. Jesus doesn’t ask us to remember his mother, his brothers, his disciples, or anyone else in the bible. He doesn’t ask us to remember anyone except Lot’s Wife. Why. Because Lot’s wife LOOKED BACK and was turned into a pillar of salt.
Now whether that is actually literally true or not is immaterial, (I believe it happened but was a meteor strike… and there is evidence to prove this) however, from a story point of view, the fact for us today is, that if we personally look back to our past – no matter how recent – we will get STUCK. We will not be able to take advantage of all the lovely things that are in our future.
No matter that the past was good, the future has the potential to be even better. DON’T LOOK BACK! It is so tempting to look back pre-covid and take our minds back there. Maybe it was more comfortable, maybe you liked it better then, maybe the family was more together then, maybe you were earning more money then. All that is possible but, REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE. Don’t look back. Don’t get stuck in the past. Look forward with optimism, with anticipation, with joy in your future. Don’t get stuck in an imagined past that can never be repeated. EVER.
