You Think To Much Of Yourself

Esther 6:6-9

6 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?
7 And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,
8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head:
9 And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour

Haman, like so many of us, was full of pride. He thought the king would surely praise him and glorify him. He was wrong. The one who was to be praised was Mordecai. He had acted quietly and never expecting any praise for saving the king. Why does this matter? It matters because God wants us to be humble. Haman had truly done nothing but in his mind had changed the world. Mordecai had saved the king but expected nothing in return. God was willing to raise him up. That was because he humble and had humility. That is how we must be. What we do is for the kingdom and our reward is our salvation.
