    Good morning my dear friends in Christ!

    But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?” - I Kings 21:5

    The name Jezebel means dunghill which certainly fits her character. Jezebel was as corrupt as she was cruel. Her corruption can be seen in her plotting against Naboth, and her cruelty can be seen in... #D4Ldevotion #D4L #Christian

    i had no idea what Jezebel's name meant. What a tragic life and "legacy".

    Thank you for this informative and thought-provoking meditation and study on this cool-ish but sunny and beautiful Monday morning in May, brother.

    God bless you.

    I wonder if it meant that before she was born (what mother would name her child that?), or does it mean that because of her?

    Here we are at 85 and headed to 93 on this Memorial Day. Hope your day is a blessed one!

    It is possibly the "legacy" of that name that caused it to mean such a thing. How tragic. Jabez was born with a "cursed" name, but he went to the living God about all of it. His legacy is a blessed one because of it. So is his name.

    It is already humid right now, and it's s'posed to be in the 80's. A very blessed Memorial Day to you as well.
