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.

Daily D – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
