Chapter-a-Day 2 Kings 11

It profits nothing to gain the whole world, but lose your soul. Jehoiada the priest ordered the military officers, "Drag [Athaliah] outside and kill anyone who tries to follow her!" (The priest had said, "Don't kill her inside The Temple of God.") So they dragged her out to the palace's horse corral; there they killed her. 2 Kings 11:15-16 (MSG)

The pursuit of worldly power and domination is a bloody affair, and those who embark on that path discover it a toll-roll. The price is your soul; the destination a dead-end.
