Lot chose what looked pleasant to the eye when Abraham, his uncle, offered him to choose first as the land they were dwelling in could not sustain their combined flocks of livestock in the same spot.
Who could blame Lot! All the greenery and lush grass is good for the sheep and goats. It simply makes sense to the natural mind, and, after all, seeing is believing.
How many times I, and perhaps quite many of us, have made decisions in life relying on our own logic, wisdom and personal experience, all confirmed by ‘appearance’. Surely one can’t go wrong doing this, we reason. Lot did, and tragically so. Looking back, I have many regrets as well.
