I wonder if those personal friends, important officials, and priests of Ahab ever considered the trajectory of Ahab’s life? I wonder if the thought crossed their minds that by aligning themselves with him, they too, would share his same end?
What about us? Have we carefully considered the trajectory and end (for good or for bad) of those we’ve aligned with? I don’t necessarily mean all those we have relationship with, but those we share values with, heartily endorse, and pursue life with. Where are they headed? Let’s make sure that’s where we want to go.
To what end are those you aligning yourself with heading?
