For the sake of peace he makes a suggestion which is unselfish and generous. He offers Lot first choice of nay of the surrounding areas. He is ready to take what is left.

Christian friends, having a great heart solves difficulties which might have lead to estrangement. It is the kind of heart which makes for peace in the home, and at church, and in your neighborhoods when interests seem to clash.
