This chapter is a picture of wisdom vs foolishness.
👉 Esther – Wisdom ( v 2-8 )
• won favor in the sight of others (in this case – the king)
• fasted for three days prior to approaching the king (recognized the seriousness of the situation and prayed first)
• approached the king with humility
• exercised patience and restraint
👉 Haman – Foolishness (v 9-14)
• easily angered – from joyful to filled with wrath in a moment
• prideful and boastful
• accepted counsel from the wrong people
• presumed to dictate the king’s decisions
👉 Lord, whatever we encounter today, help us to respond in wisdom with prayer, humility, and patience.
You, friends, are loved, chosen, and of infinite value to your heavenly Father.
