- Today's Scripture *May 1, 2009*Esther 6: 7-9So he replied, “If the king wishes to honor someone, he should bring out one of the king’s own royal robes, as well as a horse that the king himself has ridden—one with a royal emblem on its head. Let the robes and the horse be handed over to one of the king’s most noble officials. And let him see that the man whom the king wishes to honor is dressed in the king’s robes and led through the city square on the king’s horse. Have the official shout as they go, ‘This is what the king does for someone he wishes to honor!’”Haman had wealth, but he craved something even his money couldn't buy--respect. He could buy the trappings of success and power, but his lust for popularity had become an obsession. Don't let your desire for approval, applause, and popularity drive you to immoral actions.Father God, we want to have more of You in our lives.May our desire for You and our desire to become more and more like Christ--drive our daily life.May we live lives above reproach. In Jesus' Name, Amen..Have a great weekend!Your sister in Christ,April Please do not remove when forwarding
