What Did Lot Do Wrong Here?

Genesis 13:10-11 (ESV)
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw that the Jordan Valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zoar. (This was before the Lord  destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
11 So Lot chose for himself all the Jordan Valley, and Lot journeyed east. Thus they separated from each other.

What did Lot do wrong here?

Was it being selfish and taking the best Abraham offered like many accuse Lot of doing?

  1. I don’t know. I think perhaps that (that Lot took the best) is read into it.

    I have read this passage and all the passages concerning Lot over and over. But one time I caught a glimpse into the turning point here for Lot. Although Lot was righteous and vexed by the sins of Sodom (2 Peter 2:7); he first allowed himself to be led astray right here.

    More later when I get all the verses gathered up.
