FOR SUCH A TIMES AS THIS
Many people live for power and position but few are willing to give it up. After reflecting on the devotional today, when we live to obtain power and position for ourselves we will come to the end knowing that what we built will die with us but for those who obtain such things for the betterment of others will leave a legacy that lives beyond them.
When we advance in our lives whether through knowledge, personal strength, or positions of leadership, do we move into those things realizing that we have been gifted to be the gift of multiplying that prosperity into others? When we grow, are others growing around us because the first step is personal growth but does your personal growth translate into growth in others? Are you creating a life that is thriving or a culture of thriving where more than one person is nurtured to take it to the next level just as you?
I stress this always in the youth because it is so counter-cultural to the times we live in, you are blessed to be a blessing.
Today Esther was reminded hard by Mordecai that just because she is safely tucked away in her palace as the new queen of Persia, does not mean that the threat of genocide of the Jews is something that she can ignore. Thankfully she takes the rebuke of Mordecai well and responds by taking the steps necessary to do what she can to help her people in her new found position of being near to the King who does have the authority to bring about the change.
As it is Thanksgiving week, the custom is to be thankful, but may your thankfulness lead to being in the posture of generosity and helping others!
