The Book of Esther
As many of you know I teach 1st-3rd grade in Sunday School. Today our lesson was taken from the book of Esther. It mostly covered the entire book. The king as you know was not happy with his first Queen after she refused to come to him when he sent for her. So he decided to find a new Queen. He had many girls brought to the place where they were placed under the care of one of his severants, They were only to eat the best of food and recieved beauty treatments before they were sent to visit the King. When he met Esther he found favor with her and he choose her for his Queen.then you know the rest of the story of how she had to risk her life to save her life and that of her people. For she had not told the King she was a Jew. I read the entire book of Esther again yesterday and suggest you do so to. This was a remarkable woman who faced death to save her people. She showed great courage. I hope we can follow her example and when we are faced with the trails of life can show as much courage as she did.
