DON'T SELL IT

DON'T SELL IT
I Kings 21:3 "but Naboth said to Ahab, 'The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you'"
 
Christianity is being compromised with different explanation.

There is no difference between a believer and unbeliever.

the love of money has taken over the day.

women can sell their bodies just to get what they want.

Christians marrying unbelievers is no longer a tobaoo.

 

this is my view about the story i read in I Kings 21.

 

Naboth had a vineyard.

the vineyard was Naboth inheritance.

They've been warned by God against the selling of inheritance. Numbers 36:7

King Ahab wanted to use money for the exchange of Naboth's vineyard but he refused to sell his inheritance.

King Ahab made another offer to Naboth-- the offer is getting him another land better than this in a better place. Naboth refused.

Naboth had the courage of his convictions to stand up for God, truth and righteousness. Though it was costly.

 

What made Naboth stood his ground is:

1. Naboth obeyed God.

2. Naboth is not a lover of money.

3. Naboth did not sell his birthright like Esau did.

 

Naboth could have sold the land with explanation that ---- it is the respect he had for the king that made him sold the land.

 

Lessons

1. Don't sell your integrity

2. Obey God and never disobey with explanation.

3. Please do not sell your inheritance.

 

IT SHALL BE WELL WITH US
