This bible study focuses on the wrong choices a father made and the impact it had on his family especially his daughters.
Points to Ponder
- Wrong choices can lead the family in the wrong direction (Genesis19:30).
- You must take time to reflect on your circumstances in order to make the right decisions (Genesis19:30).
- Making too many wrong choices can lead to fear, stress, and emotional disaster (Genesis19:31).
- There are individuals that occasionally engage in sinful actions to justify preserving their family which leads to disaster and disrespect of the Word of God (Genesis19:32).
- Thinking in a reactive mode can at times, be very dangerous (Genesis19:33-35).
- Drinking too much alcohol reduces your ability to remain in self-control and others can take advantage of you without your knowledge (Genesis19:35).
- You must avoid listening to a family member when they are out of the will of God (Genesis19:35).
- Incestuous relationships (sexual immorality) can only lead to conflict within the family (Genesis19:36-38).
- There are people who will use deception (in order to preserve their family line) and try to get you to participate in their ungodly way. Sadly to say they do believe they are right (Genesis19:32).
- Getting drunk and using illegal drugs are poor examples for you and your family. As a father or mother, you must model Godly standards for your children (Genesis19:30-36)
Something to Consider
The people you are close to may willfully make wrong choices because they believe it will benefit the family. Lot’s daughters believed incest with their father was the best thing to do to preserve their family line. History shows they were absolutely wrong. They used deceptive methods to sleep with their father by getting him drunk.
There are people in your life that will also use deceptive ways to convince you to make wrong choices. Your choices must always be based on Godly principles which might isolate you from friends and families. Yet you must not fear the isolation because of the right choices you made because God will be pleased with your actions.
You must pray and solicit counsel from others to assist you when your family situation appears to be hopeless. If you stand for truth, you can potentially prevent disaster from falling upon your family and the world. Incest in the family is very damaging to the life of an individual. Lot’s daughters made a wrong choice by sleeping with their father while he was drunk. Incest is not the answer to solving life problems. You must never engage in an incestuous relationship to fulfill your selfish desires. You will destroy your relationships with the family and others around you.
Fathers, and daughters, you must think about the consequences of your actions. Always reflect and meditate on the situation when your mind is engaged in ungodly thoughts. You must always apply God’s words in the decisions you make. God will always provide your needs because He said He would. God’s blessings are greater than what you can provide for yourself. God is watching over you every day seeking to protect and guide you. All you need to do is submit your will to God. May your family be filled with contentment and joy while they live on earth.
