Rear View

The Bible parable of Lot’s wife makes a telling point. God warned Lot, his wife, and two daughters not to look back at the destruction of Sodom.

Lot’s wife peeked and paid the price. She was turned into a pillar of salt. Once you have seen the light, it’s essential not to “look” back. Once you are committed to a direction and purpose, looking back is not only pointless, it is counterproductive. 

But, then there is a time when it is important to look back. The time is “now and then” when the spirit moves you and the “why” of it is this: If you don’t look back to where you have been, how will you know that you have gone anywhere? There is strength in knowing you have come, at least, this far.
