Make the Choice to Make a Difference

Esther 3:8 Then Haman said to King Xerxes, “There is a certain people dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom who keep themselves separate. Their customs are different from those of all other people, and they do not obey the king’s laws; it is not in the king’s best interest to tolerate them. 9 If it pleases the king, let a decree be issued to destroy them, and I will give ten thousand talents of silver to the king’s administrators for the royal treasury.”    

People who separate themselves to serve God and live by His word attract criticism at best, and at worst, evil intentions from those who hate God.

The time came when Mordecai and Esther would have to take a stand on behalf of the people of God to stop Haman's genocidal plot.

Just as Esther learned hat she had "Come to the kingdom for such a time as this," (4:14) believers in Christ must recognize that God wants us to take a stand to make a difference in the lives of people.

Oftentimes our choice to make a difference brings life and turns away the shadow of death.
