“Ahab said to Elijah, ‘Have you found me, O my enemy?’ And he answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of the LORD.’ ” (1 Kings 21:20)
Elijah may get the award for being the most sarcastic prophet. This is a great example of his witty mockery. Ahab coveted Naboth’s vineyard and finally got him to “sell” it to him by having him murdered. Instead of purchasing land, his covetousness had sold his own soul.
No amount of money or shiny trinkets is worth your soul. Don’t let your desire for things that aren’t yours rob you of what God made you to be. The covetous man never has peace, his heart is constantly sullen and vexed, and he misses all the blessings God is actually giving him because he wishes he had another man’s life.
Don’t sell yourself short by trying to be someone else.
