The Power of Influence

Posted by undergroundchurch on October 31, 2010

Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews. ~ Esther 10:3

Shortly before this verse was written, Mordecai and his people were moments from extinction. In fact, you could say that he was the catalyst for his own demise by angering the one who was leading the charge, but Mordecai was not caught off guard, he just continued to fight the good fight.

Mordecai was no one special, but he supported those who were (namely Esther). In the end, he was the one exalted to the high position.

Moral: Just because feel you are in a powerless position, you still do have great influence on those around you. You never know if the one you inspire might go on to greatness all because you were faithful. We all play our parts, and the greatest parts are those that influence.
