Esther 3:5–When Haman saw that Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor, he was enraged.
Oh, the fury of an ego scorned. Haman had huge pride and he wanted everyone to honor him. Mordecai would only bow down to God, and that infuriated Haman. Are we so worried about what others think of us that we feel anger toward others who don’t feed our ego? We are to be point others toward God, not ourselves.
Father, keep my ego focused on You only. I only want to hear from You and I only want to exalt You, not myself. Keep me focused on You today. I don’t want to kneel down to myself or anyone else but You.
