Esther 2:22 (NLT)
But Mordecai heard about the plot and gave the information to Queen Esther. She then told the king about it and gave Mordecai credit for the report.
Our Father in heaven,
Mordecai was a wise and honorable man. He gave a home to his orphaned cousin. He honored the authority of his king, even though they did not worship the same God. Honor begets honor. His cousin Esther honored him.
Raise up wise and honorable men and women in the Mississippi Delta, we pray. Let there be a cultivation of honor! May truth spring up from the earth and righteousness smile down from heaven. A bounteous harvest of honor! Amen.
