“But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.”
She is not named within the Scriptures.
Her husband met and married her within the cesspool of Sodom, and it was only because of his righteousness that they were to be saved from the destruction.
The instructions were simple.
“And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.”
She too could have been saved; but her disobedience was a rejection of the salvation the Lord provided led to her fate.
Jesus Christ spoke the only three words about her to be recorded in the New Testament.
“Remember Lot's wife.”
She lived in pleasure in Sodom, but was dead in her sin.
The Lord made a way for not only her life to be saved, but also a new life to begin.
Instead, one look of disobedience led to her grave.
She heard the Word of God, but did not heed to His command.
Lot’s Wife now serves as an example for all the ages that sin has consequences. If we choose to reject the salvation that the Lord has given us, we too will become a pillar of regret.
“Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.”
Isaiah 55-56 | John 1 | Psalm 7-8
