Today at lunch I was wandering up George St towards Martin Place. As I waited to cross the street I noticed, as did ALL the guys walking that way, and in particular the opposite way, a buxom woman trotting in the same direction.
As I hurried past her I had the intention of glancing or looking over my shoulder to see her perceived beauty, but I resisted, no doubt with great assistance from the power of the Holy Spirit, and instead thought of Lots’ wife as Lot and his family hurried away from Sodom & Gomorrah. She turned back and was turned into a pillar of salt.
It is one of my hopes and prayers that I am able to do this more often; to be looking forward to the things of God and not back to the things that are of worth to this world.
