In 2nd Peter 2:6-8 we are given a glimpse into the wickedness that run amok in Sodom and Gomorrah prior to their destruction, as well as how difficult it was for just and righteous Lot to exist therein. We are told the environment of his time was so troubling to him his righteous soul was “vexed” on a day-to-day basis.
Based on the word ‘vexed’, what are we to perceive the condition of Lot’s soul was? In the original Greek it is kataponeō, the meaning of which is to “tire down with toil, exhaust with labor.” (Strong’s G2669)
Is Your Soul Exhausted?
If you’re a Christian and your soul isn’t troubled these days, even weary, it may be time to evaluate where your loyalties lie. As the saying on a popular bumper sticker goes, if you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention! Either that or, once again, your priorities and loyalties are out of whack.
