But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord , whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.
For what reason would a king, who had everything he wanted, desire another man’s vineyard? Ahab’s reasons were totally baseless. Yet, his wife, Jezebel, killed Naboth and handed over his vineyard to Ahab.
The story is very similar to David’s account with Uriah the Hitite. In both cases, the commoners died, because the kings desired and coveted what the commoners possessed.
These actions directly contradict the last of the 10 commandments, worse of all, the perpetrators were kings, who should have known best or been the last suspects.
Nonetheless, God forgave them these heinous crimes just because He saw true repentance in their actions. He will do same for you in this period of advent as we prepare to receive Him.
Lower the hills and fill up the valleys; make straight the path that leads to Him.
Have a blessed day
