Daily D – Esther 6:6
Esther 6:6 So Haman came in, and the king said, “What should I do to honor a man who truly pleases me?” Haman thought to himself, “Whom would the king wish to honor more than me?” (NLT)
If you and I cannot think of anyone who deserves more honor than us, we might be the problem. When justifiable pride crosses the line into arrogance, we are definitely the problem. It is wise to remember that kind of pride kills.
Reading from this chapter in Esther through the end of the story, Haman the Ultimate of Arrogance, dies. His ten sons die. Tense of thousands of others die. He who planned to extinguish an entire people group and those allied with him died.
A little humility goes a long way. It may even save your life.
This is a point worth pondering.
This is a truth worth implementing.
This is a lifestyle worth emulating.
I will take myself down a notch before anyone else has to.
Our Father, you are Great and i am small. It’s all about you, not about me. John the Baptist got it right. More of you; less of me. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
