Where do you face your tent?

Genesis 13:11-13 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. (NKJV)

Lot had separated from his older and wiser uncle and could have chosen to go anywhere he pleased. He chose an area he believed would be the most beneficial but it was actually the most dangerous. Lot’s second mistake, after leaving his uncle, was to place his dwelling in the dangerous proximity of temptation. When we place our self near temptation then we open all of our senses to receiving sexually charged input. Lot was now close enough to view the sexual sins of the region. Sexual visual stimuli are everywhere but you don’t have to willfully face it. Willfully choose to not face visual temptations. Monitor and keep in check magazine, TV, internet and movie viewing. Address and adjust where you sit in public places. You can’t make worldly temptation go away but you can choose where you face your tent. David Jones www.restorationpath.org
