Being God’s kind of leader means refusing to compromise what you believe. Mordecai was such a leader (Est 3:1-6). Haman demanded a show of reverence that was like worship. By refusing to bow down to Haman, Mordecai followed God’s commandment to have no other gods before Him (Exo 20:3-5).
This was a dangerous thing to do since Haman had a great deal of power.
