How did Lot end up here
Lots daughters came up with a plan to sleep with their father, without his knowledge, because all the other men in the area were destroyed by God. They did so and that is where the Moabites and Ammonites came from.
How did Lot get to this point in life? Lot's failure started when he comprised his faith by conforming to the society around him. Even if he didn't indulge in these things himself, he allowed them to happen, unopposed, around him.
The decisions you make today will affect you tomorrow! Be fearful of what you deem acceptable in your life. Be fearful of what we teach our children and grandchildren is acceptable or not. We can change the direction of our lives, and descendants lives, starting today!
Lot departed from Zoar and lived in the mountains along with his two daughters, because he was afraid to live in Zoar. Instead, he and his two daughters lived in a cave. 31 Then the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man in the land to sleep with us as is the custom of all the land. 32 Come, let’s get our father to drink wine so that we can sleep with him and preserve our father’s line.” 33 So they got their father to drink wine that night, and the firstborn came and slept with her father; he did not know when she lay down or when she got up.
34 The next day the firstborn said to the younger, “Look, I slept with my father last night. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight so you can go sleep with him and we can preserve our father’s line.” 35 That night they again got their father to drink wine, and the younger went and slept with him; he did not know when she lay down or when she got up.
36 So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. 37 The firstborn gave birth to a son and named him Moab.[a] He is the father of the Moabites of today. 38 The younger also gave birth to a son, and she named him Ben-ammi.[b] He is the father of the Ammonites of today.
