For Such A Time As This: What Goes Around
It is a good thing to ask God to strengthen, encourage and help us to do well in life. But there are times that we can (like Haman) get so focused on getting ahead in life/work/achievements that we start to think we are better than others and we belittle and criticize. “Humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less” (C.S. Lewis). Mordecai demonstrated humility as a characteristic he cultivated in his life. He served God and he severed others even after being honoured by the king. We can ask God to help us cultivate the humility of Jesus.
(Philippians 2:8/ Luke 14:11)
