When Honor Becomes Idolatry
After these events, King Xerxes honored Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, elevating him and giving him a seat of honor higher than that of all the other nobles. All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor.
Leaders who demand honor are actually setting themselves up as idols. Don’t fall for this type of spiritual abuse, and if you’ve been sucked into it… learn how to get free.
