Jesus said "Love the lord with all your heart, with all your strength, and with all your might. And love your neighbor as you love yourself."
In this advent season, there are desires of our hearts for the things we may wish to have, and honors that might be bestowed upon us. Go ahead and let yourself claim what it is that you desire.
Do you desire new fancy things? Someone to acknowledge your hard work? New technology? Craft beer?
NOW....what if you could take those desires and bestow them on someone else? Or gave these things to the people you really cannot stand?
The lesson of humility in this chapter goes beyond Haman's pride but tackles God's grace in a way that we think inconceivable.
Lord, for the wisdom you provide in switching things around for us, we thank you?!?
