1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
Knowing what scandal awaited him in front of his guests, and what ill-treatment awaited these guests from his own people, Lot was troubled on their account.The woeful day soon started when his people rushed towards him. They were impelled by their desires, rushing like one who has lost self-control. This was the reason for the distress Lot felt on his guests’ account.
When Lot looked at his people coming hurriedly towards his home, intent on abusing him and his guests, he tried to arouse their upright nature and direct them to the opposite sex with whom healthy nature finds pleasure. He was even ready to give his daughters in marriage to those frenzied people to satisfy their maddening desires in a clean, pure way. All the connotations of purity,psychological and physical, are meant here. Lot’s daughters would provide a proper, sound and natural way for the satisfaction of sexual desire, arousing healthy feelings as well. It is a situation of complete purity, natural as well as moral and religious. Moreover, they are physically purer. The will of the Creator has provided a clean, pure place for the new emerging life.
Lot also tried to appeal to their fear of God, and their sense of propriety in providing hospitality to one’s guests.
