1 KINGS 21

This chapter talks about Naboth. He had a vineyard next to king Ahab's palace which Ahab admired and requested to pay him for it but Naboth refuses. The king shares it with his wife Jezebel  and this wicked woman advises him to falsely accuse Naboth of blasphaming God and the king. Naboth is later stoned to death. And at the time Ahab goes to take over the vineyard, God sends prophet Elijah  who tells him  that his blood would be licked by dogs and his wife Jezebel would be killed in Jezreel and her body would be eaten by dogs. We  should  ask God to take away the selfishness from us and to grant us his love to reign in us. Love is not self seeking, not envious,not proud, it does not boast, does not keep a record of wrongs, it protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres and it never fails.1 Corinthians 13:4
