Parsha Vayeira - Chapter 19 – Verses 4 - 8

Lot is now back at his home with his 2 guests (the angels). An angry mob is outside demanding Lot bring them outside so they can "be intimate with them." Lot goes outside alone &offers his daughters to the mob in lieu of the guests.

These verses bring down how mixed up a person can become when they are living amongst wicked people. We can lose clarity on what is right and wrong, and the bad behaviors become habituation and then part of our nature.

Today our tests are so great because in our generation, with a click of a button we can bring Sodom into our homes and bedrooms. We have to constantly catch ourselves. Hashem created us all with a conscience. It may be buried under layers and layers of bad behaviors, but even so it is still there and it is still pure & will always remain pure.

We need to wake ourselves up & feel what is right and what is wrong again. And always be with people who are going to help us grow and raise us up as this is the way to keep our vision clear and our conscience bright.
