Winning Favor

| 1:33 MIN READ |

When was the last time someone did you a favor? Favor is a wonderful thing. We don’t get very far in life without favor along the way.

To impact the world and experience greatness, we must grow the attitudes that win favor –– the favor of God and man. There’s a wonderful story in the Bible about a lady who attracted favor. Take a look at the following verses in Esther 2:15-17 (NIV) “When the turn came for Esther … to go to the king, she asked for nothing other than what Hegai, the king’s eunuch who was in charge of the harem, suggested. And Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her. She was taken to King Xerxes …Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”

Esther was presented to the king of Persia with the possibility that she could become the next queen. Her moment was successful because of the attitudes she practiced during the preparation process. She faithfully prepared herself over time. Her good attitudes didn’t start the day of her presentation, they were a consistent part of her days of preparation. Her attitudes prepared her for favor. At the right time, favor showed up because she had proven favorable!

What’s the lesson for us? Value your present opportunities by practicing the attitudes that attract favor. If your attitudes are consistently favorable, favor will show up in your life. People with favorable attitudes win favor!
