Esther 2:20-23 Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her: for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him. (21) In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king's gate, two of the king's chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus. (22) And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai's name. (23) And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king.

There are still a lot of things going on that no one understands. In this passage, Mordecai discovers a plot to kill the king. The right thing to do is to let the king know about the danger. Sometimes doing the right thing will not have immediate rewards, but it does build our character and our testimony. A good testimony is worth more than anything we can own. A good testimony could even be worth someone's life. What will Mordecai's testimony be worth to him?
