Who Would Ever Choose Her?
| The people in
neither nation, Northern or Southern Israel, had the power to choose their
king. Kings inherited their position. Yesterday we mentioned Ahab as being
the more wicked king than any before him. His wife, Jezebel, had a lot to
do with that due to the power she exercised during his reign.
Once Ahab was dead, and knowing what a terror Jezebel was, what decent minded Israelite would choose her to lead the nation even if they could? She had proven how undeserving she was and, of course, was soon taken down herself.
We have the power to choose our leaders. But we must be careful lest we find Jezebel ruling the nation.
