Lot’s wife had been flawless, she married a godly man, I imagine she was faithful to him and she made a good home, with great children raised in it. She made one great decisions after another which helped her accumulate much goods and garner much respect. But when Sodom and Gomorrah was burning, she made a bad decision. She disobeyed the angel’s command and looked back because of her possessions. She turned into a pillar of salt. All her previous right decisions could do no good for her at the moment.
One wrong decision can cost you big time. It’s not enough that you’ve made so many good decisions so far, you must continue to make the right ones. The more right decisions you make, the more right decisions you have to make. Just like the more successful you get, the more successful you have to get to keep afloat. One wrong decisions has the potential of flooring all the right decisions you’ve made thus far.
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. – James 2:10
