Influenced

Today's reading: 1 Kings 21:17-29

God is angry with Ahab's continued sinful ways, and sends Elijah to confront Ahab about Naboth's murder and the subsequent taking of his property. But Ahab didn't act alone. 1 Kings 21:25 tells us that Jezebel "incited" Ahab to do wrong, and that's exactly what we've observed the past week or so as we've spent time in 1 Kings. Jezebel was a strong-willed and influential accomplice, who reinforced and magnified Ahab's sinful thinking and actions by her support, urging and help.

What do Ahab and Jezebel show us about the importance of aligning ourselves with godly minded people? Who are the people in your life that influence your thinking and actions? Are you being a positive influence to those around you? Tami
