…because you have sold yourself to do evil in the eyes of the Lord.” 1 Kings 21:20b
In today’s reading we hear of one of Ahab’s most dastardly acts. And his greed gets magnified by Jezebel’s drive for power. Along with this we also see the cooperation of the elders and nobles and the lies of two scoundrels. It’s as if the whole government is participating in this plot to kill an innocent man and steal his land.
…Sometimes we have to be sufficiently disgusted with our sinful ways in order to gain an appetite for grace. Sometimes it takes an honest assessment of the corruption and idolatry of our leaders to make us hunger afresh for the goodness of our true King, Jesus. “Today Devotional”, 11-17-20.
When will we become disgusted with the sinful ways of our country and return to our first love – Jesus (Rev 2:4, Psalm 51:12)? ☹️
God bless you today 🤗
