Scripture

Esther 3: 1-4

Some time later King Xerxes promoted a man named Haman to the position of prime minister. Haman was the son of Hammedatha, a descendant of Agag. The king ordered all the officials in his service to show their respect for Haman by kneeling and bowing to him. They all did so, except for Mordecai, who refused to do so. The other officials in the royal service asked him why he was disobeying the king’s command; day after day they urged him to give in byt he would not listen to them. ” I am a Jew, ” he explained, ” and cannot bow to Haman.” So they told Haman about this, wondering if he would tolerate Mordecai’s conduct.

Psalm  95: 6

Come, let us bow down and worship him; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker!!

Observation

We should not bow down and worship man. No one can replace the position of GOD

Application

There is one and only GOD. No body or idol is able to replace him.  We should stand steadfast about our faith and not let the pressures of society get to us when we know it is not correct. It doesn’t mean that because everyone else is doing it is the right thing to do. Trust GOD and only worship him alone.

Prayer

Dear LORD,

help me not to bow to the pressures of society and worship any one else besides you.

AMEN.
