Rescuers

Average reading time is about 1 and a half minutes
AN AMAZING FACT:  In January 2010, as Wesley Autrey waited for a subway train in New York, a fellow traveler fell to the floor in convulsions. With help he was able to get up, but he stumbled and fell between the tracks. Then the train’s headlights appeared. Mr. Autrey made an instant decision, leaping onto the helpless man and pressing him down as the train thundered inches above them. Both men survived. Mr. Autrey insisted he wasn’t a hero; he simply saw someone that needed help and did what he felt was right.

“Choose which land you would like,” Abraham offered. You can imagine the dollar signs popping up on Lot’s eyes as he gazed over the green, fertile valley. “I’ll take this area,” he told his uncle. Soon Lot had moved his livestock, servants, and family onto the preferred land.

Abraham and Lot had their differences. But when Abraham heard that Lot had been captured by heathen kings, he didn’t hesitate. Never mind that he had only 318 servants to fight with him against potentially huge armies. He bravely armed his men, tracked down his nephew’s abductors, and freed Lot and his family.

Although Lot had been selfish, had distanced himself from his uncle, and had probably moved close enough to heathen cities to be influenced by them, Abraham still loved him. He was family; nothing would keep him from rescuing Lot.

Isn’t that what God does for us? Even when we’re selfish, distant, or straying in the wrong direction, He still loves us. He comes to our rescue when we least deserve it. What grace! What a Rescuer!
