When Success Is Meaningless

Read the Bible in a year by reading First Kings 21 and 22 today.
Of the wicked king Ahab, this was said after his death, “Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, the ivory house which he built and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel” (1Kings 22:39). That sounds as though he was rich and prosperous, and he was in some regards, but he rebelled against the Lord and died in shame.
What have we accomplished, if we succeed in the world, but die in wickedness?
