“Mordecai understood that it is not failure that brings despair,but unfaithfulness and idleness.”~Dorothy Patterson, editor of Women’s Devotional Bible Devotion: Service Through Providence, Esther 3:13-4:17: So true. Failure happens to everyone at sometime in life, but that should not bring us to feelings of despair. That should just bring us back up on our feet, ready to try even harder, and determined to succeed this time. But, when we choose to become unfaithful, and let the devil of idleness rule our life, that is when we will sink deep into despair. God will punish us for our lack of faith, and our idleness. Heartaches, and disappointment will become our closest friends. The sun will seem to never shine, because we are not allowing the true Son to shine through our lives. So, choose to be faithful, and stay busy daily doing the work of your Father, and He will be well pleased my friends.
