Celebration could be defined as a joyful occasion for special festivities to mark some happy event. Honour on the other hand could be defined as fame or glory; great respect, regard, esteem, etc.; high or noble rank.

Honour could come upon a man in several ways: some are born with it e.g. Royals; some attained it by diligence and hard work e.g. Professors; while some were made honourable by calling e.g. Priests.

In Chapter 3 of the Book of Esther, we are made to know that Mordecai was a diligent and hardworking man; he was always sited at his duty post. However, Haman hated him because he wouldn’t do obeisance unto him. There was a plot therefore by Haman not only to kill Mordecai, but the whole of Jewish race. This made the Jews to fast and prayed for 3 days and afterwards God overturned tables against Haman.

God joggled the memory of the King to remember the loyalty of Mordecai which had gone unrewarded. This led the King to authorise a celebration of honour for Mordecai, ironically it had to be implemented by Haman (Esther 6:1-12).

In this month of June, your Royal descent will speak for you. Your diligence and hard work will be remembered and your calling be celebrated in Jesus name. May the King of kings authorise your celebration of honour; and may He force your assailants and persecutors to supervise your jubilation in Jesus name.
