Make wise choices.
Your choices have consequences.
1. the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier:
2. an act or instance of following something as an effect, result, or outcome.

“II. CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF LOT’S CHOICE.
As he made worldly advantage his chief aim, he failed in gaining it.
Twice he lost his entire possessions;
he left Sodom poorer than he entered it.
He was stripped of the labours of years, and dared not even look behind on the ruin of his hopes.
Lot’s choice showed disregard of religious privileges.
The sins of the men of Sodom were of a peculiarly gross and inhuman kind;
had Lot’s religion been warm and bright he would not have ventured among them.
He may have excused himself to his conscience by saying that he was going to do good, but when he left Sodom he could not count a single convert.
Lot’s disregard of spiritual privileges brought on him a bitter entail of sin and shame.
His own religious character suffered from his sojourn in Sodom.
This alone can account for the grievous termination of his history.
His life remains as a warning against the spirit of worldliness.
Both worlds frequently slip from the grasp in the miserable attempt to gain the false glitter of the present.”
