A Penitent Blogger

The repentance of Ahab

In today’s first reading (1 Kings 21:17-29), the infamous King Ahab repents, his repentance is recognized by the Lord, and his punishment is withheld.

Tragically, Ahab would go on to disregard the word of the Lord yet again, with fatal results, and the dogs would indeed lick up his blood.

Repentance is a necessary thing, but may God give you and I the grace to persevere in repentance and to follow his will now and in all the days to come.
