Sunday Devotional: Esther 2:21-23

“In those days, as Mordecai was sitting at the king’s gate, Bigthan and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs, who guarded the threshold, became angry and sought to lay hands on King Ahasuerus.  And this came to the knowledge of Mordecai, and he told it to Queen Esther, and Esther told the king in the name of Mordecai.  When the affair was investigated and found to be so, the men were both hanged on the gallows.  And it was recorded in the book of the chronicles in the presence of the king.”  Esther 2:21-23

Mordecai was a faithful follower of God even in the midst of being and serving in a court of those who didn’t.  He honored those in authority but ultimately honored God with his life and his actions.  This event that’s recorded in the verses here was a minor event but would have major implications.  At the time, Mordecai didn’t know this.  All he knew was that there was a threat to the King Ahasuerus (otherwise known as Xerses I) and warned the king about it.  This small act of service would later play a key role in helping the Jewish nation that lived under the rule of Ahasuerus.

Little things do matter.  You never know how the actions you do to serve someone can make a huge impact.  So as you’re going about this week, remember that the little things do matter.  God may use your “small” act for big purposes for His kingdom.
