The Danger of Looking Back
Luke 17:32
Remember Lot's wife.

There is a story of a high mountain on whose top was a palace filled with all treasures, gold, gems, singing birds — a paradise of pleasures. Up its sides men and women were climbing to reach the top; but every one who looked back was turned into stone. And yet thousands of evil spirits were around them, whispering, shouting, flashing their treasures, singing love-songs to draw their eyes from the treasure at the top, and to make them look back; but every one that looked back was turned into stone. So is every one who is seeking heavenly treasures tempted by earthly music and sinful joys; but whosoever yields is lost.

(W. Baxendale.)
