But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26

Some things are outright not right and other things may be not right in my heart.
Only I know that.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
