So Ahab went home, angry and depressed because of what Naboth had told him. He lay on his bed, just staring at the wall and refusing to eat a thing.
~I Kings 21:4, CEV
Give God your weakness and He will give you His strength.
I have read the story of Ahab and Jezebel many times but this past week, I saw something I had not seen before: Ahab is a jelly fish personality. He had some good qualities and he knew right from wrong but he was weak and wimpish. Ahab was afraid of failure and he tended to evade responsibility by passing the buck. His severe lack of character made him a horrible king. Ahab would be a perfect fit for the Republican party. He had no backbone, no intestinal fortitude and no resolve to do right. Jezebel was the opposite. There was nothing weak about Jezebel. I’m not saying she had character or at least not good character. She was as mean as a copperhead and ruthless to boot. She did not take no for an answer and she did not make excuses like her husband. No, no, Mrs. Jezebel made plans-evil, diabolical plans. She lied, slandered, connived, deceived, forged her husband’s name and anything else it took to get results. She could be the head of the democratic party today.
The demos came win an honest election these days so they slander their opponents. I’m wondering how they will slander Tommy Tuberville and what the liberal Auburn fans will do when it happens. I’m not saying that all Auburn fans are liberal: most of the ones I know are very conservative but I do know some who are very liberal. Will their allegiance be to the demos or to Auburn’s heritage. My political consultant in Athens tells me that Tommy is a good man. If I’m not mistaken, he is Church of Christ but that poses no problem for men. There is going to be a TOMMY sign in my yard as soon as I can lay hands on one. So what will the PARTY OF JEZEBEL do about Tommy and the upcoming election. I’ll tell you what they want do: they will not roll over and play dead. They will lie, slander, cheat and do whatever else they can to win.
