1 Kings 21:23 (NIV)
And also concerning Jezebel the Lord says: ‘Dogs
will devour Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.’
group of ladies is reading Bad Girls of
the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs (who, by the way, was a fabulous speaker at
the 2013 Women of Faith conference).
This week’s bad girl is Jezebel. Do
you have any kind of reaction to that name?
It’s not often used anymore, but I grew up thinking a jezebel was a
mean, nasty, witchy woman. After the
Biblical bio, online dictionaries describe an
impudent, shameless, morally unrestrained, evil and scheming woman. Sounds like the B word on steroids. Got the picture?
approached the story thinking “This will be a juicy read, but I’m not sure I’ll
learn anything. We don’t have anything
in common.” Was I ever wrong! While I’m not a murderess or power monger, she
and I definitely share personality traits and attitudes. OUCH! I’ll
leave you guessing, but don’t ever assume you’re so much better than those jezebels. God will humble you in an instant! I stand convicted. Snap the mug shot.
you open to hearing God address your sometimes negative personality traits?
