A Delayed Reward with Accrued Interest

We are impatient people demanding immediate recognition and reward for our efforts.  In today’s reading (Esther 4:1-9:17) we get to know a man who did what was right even though he was overlooked for a time.

Whoever said, “A man may do an immense deal of good, if he does not care who gets the credit.” must have had Mordecai in mind. [Click here for a discussion of the origin of this quote.]

By faith in our sovereign God, we may live more selflessly and more productively.  May this be true of you and me.

[For more reflections on this passage see the corresponding reading in my book Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 days].
