I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know. (Genesis 18:21 NKJV)
This passage clearly shows that a group of people can take on an identity, a culture; therefore, that group of people can be judged according to their actions. It also shows that we can make personal decisions about our behavior and be judged according to those actions. This is relevant to us today. Society, leaders, our culture can pull us in a certain direction. Nations, cities and even families can take on an identity. Our leaders are important and we need to pray for great leadership.
But, I truly believe that we need to look at the person in the mirror first. We need to have strong roots, feed our faith and live for the Lord. We need to take care of our brothers and sisters. When we do those things personally, it feeds over into a group of people. The spheres of influence become bigger and bigger. The Lord is looking for those who are righteous in His eyes to do His work.
