The object lesson / the routine

The Lord and two angels made a visit to Abraham.  It was during this visit that Abraham was told of the future birth of his son Isaac.  He was also told about the impending destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.  Not only would the cities be destroyed, but Abraham’s relatives would be killed too. 

Abraham had to plead for their lives.  He had to intervene, so he asked the Lord if he would spare the city if fifty righteous people were found in it.  God said, yes He would indeed spare the city for fifty righteous people.  Abraham continued, how about forty-five?  how about forty? Then he got to thirty, then twenty and finally ten.
