Ahab wanted the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. Ahab wanted it for a vegetable garden. Imagine tearing out those beautiful productive grape vines and growing vegetables. Naboth would not sell because it was his inheritance from his father. This word inheritance was a very spiritual thing in Israel sometimes going back to entering the land of Israel. Now I ask, “What was considered spiritual to us of Ahab & Jezebel?” I want to pause here to say to myself, “How do I carry myself before men?” I am sure there are men who have the same characteristics as Ahab and I am sure women like Jezebel. My concern is where I stand and how do I feel as I look at myself in the mirror every morning.
