Humility is the way of God, the way of Jesus, and the way of all God’s people. In a world where the proud have such extensive power, it’s sometimes hard to remember, but the rise and fall of Haman demonstrate it once again. God actively opposes the proud. God eventually exalts the humble.
Main Text: Esther
We’re in a mini-series on the Book of Esther. This week we’re looking at a pair of important characters in the story: Haman and Mordecai.
Haman was the king’s right hand man—and he expected everyone to bow to him in reverence.
Mordecai was a nobody who refused to bow to Haman, but he was God’s nobody.
Haman decided to have Mordecai and all his people killed. But God intervened, showing once again that God opposes the proud.
