way to go Naboth

1 Kings 21:1-3 It cost him his life, but Naboth refused the lies of Satan to try to have him give up what God had given him.
Satan, in the words of Ahab, promised him a better vineyard if he would give up what God had given him. NEVER-that is the answer to the question, 'When will satan give you something better than what God has given you?'
Ahab also offered MONEY, cash, a temporary 'windfall' that would do nothing to honor his heritage or provide for his descendants.
So satan has two bullets in his gun. The offer of something that he describes as "better" but it is most definitely NOT, and the offer of something that will provide temporary 'wow' and then be an eternal letdown.
Way to go Naboth, he dodged both bullets and was used by the sacrifice of his life to actually bring repentance to Ahab. Beautiful
