When Mordecai overheard the King's two guards plotting to kill the King he told Queen Esther, who in turn told the King. The King's life was saved; "And it was recorded in the chronicles in the presence of the King." (Esther 2:23). Mordecai was never honored for his bravery and kindness. One night the King could not sleep and asked his subjects to read to him from the chronicles; when the story was read how Mordecai had saved his life, the King asked 'what honor or distinction was given this man? The reply was, nothing has been done for him. Then Mordecai was bestowed great honor by the King. GOD waited until the PERFECT TIME to let Mordecai's loyalty be known, a time that benefited everyone, a time that GLORIFIED GOD. A time which was GOD'S PROVIDED TIME. Our greatest accomplishments are not those which bring great recognition and rewards; it is the ones we do because THE RIGHT THING TO DO, IS ENOUGH.
