The angels had given a clear warning to Lot & his family that they should not look back at the destruction of Sodom, rather to head towards the mountain (Genesis 19:17). Lot's wife disobeyed God by looking back, & the fuller meaning of this is, not just a turning around to see the burning of the city, but that her heart was still there in Sodom & she saw her friends & dreams being evaporated. She had to pay for her sin of disobedience, just as Lot's daughters had to bear the consequences of their decision to keep the family line going: their sons, Moab & Benammi (Ammon) departed into rejection of the True God & into idolatry & were often at war with Israel. However, Ruth (from the Book of Ruth), a Moabitess, provides a glimmer of hope to us, being King David's great-grandmother.

Though the daughters of Lot were at fault, the children they bore for their father became well known in the Bible.Why didn't God save the wife of Lot so that this won't happen?
