the grass is greener. #dailysoulfood



"Lot..saw it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed Sodom) like the garden of The Lord, like the land of Egypt. Then Lot chose for himself the plain of Jordan...and pitched his tent near Sodom" - Genesis 13

be careful when setting ur eyes on grass that "seems" greener elsewhere. Lot set his eyes on a "supposedly greener" pasture and set his tent near sodom....  

ultimately, that decision became the worst decision of his life. he ended up living not just near sodom, but IN sodom. he lost all his possessions, his friends and his wife... and his daughters and him barely made it out alive. all that because he set his eyes on things that he thought was good to him for the moment, instead of thinking about long term consequences.

daily soul food: the grass isnt always greener on the other side...so let's not set our eyes on trials, circumstances, problems and even good things like "dreams" or what seems to be greener pasture elsewhere.... let's not be stupid like Lot. 

instead let's fix our eyes on Jesus, the Living Water... He is after all the author and perfecter of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2)
