Haman hated Mordecai. He hated him because he was a Jew and he wouldn’t bow down to him. Haman wanted Mordecai dead, but Mordecai was uncle to the queen and had saved the king’s life. The king didn’t know these things until Haman had already manipulated the planning of Mordecai’s execution. There are always though who seem to hate God’s children with an unnatural spite and fight to see them destroyed, but God often raises up an unlikely hero like Esther, an orphan girl who replaced the first queen. We may have enemies and adversaries, but Jesus is our unlikely hero. Spend a few moments today thanking God for sending Jesus to die on the cross to save you from your sins. Take time to reflect today on His sacrifice for you.
