The final chapter of Esther is only 3 verses long. It simply tells us that King Ahasuerus taxed the people while Mordecai “was great among the Jews and popular with the multitude of his brothers, for he sought the welfare of his people and spoke peace to all his people.”
As I read and studied these three verses, I couldn’t help but see that it told us about a governmental official who did his job in a way that his people loved him.
As our own elections are right around the corner, my mind was drawn to how we can get those kinds of people in office. In fact, I saw that there were at least 5 questions that we should ask of potential candidates to determine if they are the kind of people we want to serve us in a governmental capacity. These questions were drawn from plenty of verses in the book of Proverbs.
Finally, in this sermon, I noted that I had taken notes when I was on staff at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee as Dr. Rogers preached a sermon entitled, “A Christian Voter’s Guide.” Here are my brief notes from that sermon:
