Parsha Vayeira - Chapter 19 – Verses 1 - 3
Lot is now sitting and waiting for guests at the gates of Sodom. This verse has a lot of similarities and differences in the way that Avraham sat and waited for guests. We learn how much influence Avraham had on his nephew Lot by displaying Zerizus (alacrity) for doing a mitzvah. Ultimately Hashem witnessed his strong desire to do the mitzvah of Hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests) and the depth of his action is exactly what saved Lot's life.
