Scripture

Esther 2: 19-23

Meanwhile Mordecai had been appointed by the king to an administrative position. As for Esther, she had still not let it be known that she was Jewish. Mordecai had told her not to tell anyone, and she obeyed him in this, just as she had obeyed him when she was a little girl under his care. During the time that Mordecai held office in the palace, Bigthana and Teresh, two of the palace eunuchs who guarded the entrance to the king’s rooms, become hostile to King Xerxes and plotted to assassinate him. Mordecai learned about it and told Queen Esther, Who then told the king what Mordecai had found out. There was an investigation, and it was discovered that the report was true, so both men were hanged on the gallows. The king ordered and account of this to be written down in the official records of the empire.

SOAP

Proverbs 19:20

If you listen to advice and are willing to learn, one day you will be wise.

Observation

There are always teachers around if we are willing to learn from them. They can come in many different forms and teach us different life lessons  which can help to shape our lives. A true teacher will always have your interest at heart.

Application

Sometimes it can be really difficult to listen and follow/obey others. This is especially if we are full of doubt about whether they have well meaning or ill intentions attached to their actions. Trust  GOD and follow your gut on whether the teachings are to your benefit or not. If they are do pay attention and obey.

Prayer

Dear GOD,

Help me to tell the difference between real and fake teachers and to earnestly follow your teachings so that I will be able to have a closer bond with you.

AMEN
