Don't Look Back

Each and every one of us can learn from the story of Lot's wife. As I watched this video, I was thinking of where this video was going. Then it hit me as they were getting to the moral of the story. God commanded  Lot that he and his family needed to leave and not to look back. Lot's wife was scared to leave her past behind because she loved it so much, and so she looked back. She was set so much on the things she was leaving behind and didn't think of the future. As a result she turned into a pillar of salt. We can learn from this by not looking back to the past and to look forward to the future. We can't go back. We can learn from it, but we need to live for the future. We need to have hope that everything will turn out well as we leave our past behind. God has a plan for everyone of us. We need to trust him and have faith in him that our future will be better. As we learn from our past we can change our future. Our Savior Jesus Christ loves us so much that he suffered for our sins so that we have that chance to change our past. The Atonement of Jesus Christ allows us to live for the future. I am very grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ and for his Atonement, allowing me to ask for forgiveness of my sins. Giving me the strength to forget about my past and to have a better future. I love my Savior so much for his sacrifice.
