Esther 5:1-14

This chapter is a picture of wisdom vs foolishness.

πŸ‘‰ Esther – Wisdom ( v 2-8 )

β€’ won favor in the sight of others (in this case – the king)

β€’ fasted for three days prior to approaching the king (recognized the seriousness of the situation and prayed first)

β€’ approached the king with humility

β€’ exercised patience and restraint

πŸ‘‰ Haman – Foolishness (v 9-14)

β€’ easily angered – from joyful to filled with wrath in a moment

β€’ prideful and boastful

β€’ accepted counsel from the wrong people

β€’ presumed to dictate the king’s decisions

πŸ‘‰ 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.
