Lessons from Esther
Today's reading: Esther 1-10
Thank you for reading through and considering the Book of Esther with me for the last couple of weeks. I hope you enjoyed this story that is rich in details and history, but also rich in lessons from the different characters in the account--King Ahasuerus, Haman, Esther, Mordecai, even the eunuchs. So, speaking of lessons, before moving on to another Book, let's take today to look back over this action-packed story and consider the valuable lessons we found in it.
This time as I read through Esther, the primary lesson that God impressed on my heart was how, regardless of our circumstances or season in life, we need to be ready, available and looking for every opportunity to serve and work for God, and then be willing to step up and take action when the time is right.
What did you learn from the examples (good or bad) of Ahasuerus, Haman, Esther and/or Mordecai? What was the most significant lesson God impressed on your heart from this Book? How will you utilize this lesson in your daily life? Tami
