Theme of the Day
TODAY we Join the Story on Act 4 ISRAEL: Esther 4: 8-17
Last week we heard about the prophet Nathan challenging King David. This week we hear a story about God’s people in 5th century Persian captivity. Mordecai, a Jew, brought up Hadassah, also known by her Persian name, Esther, and adopted her as his own daughter. Esther wins a beauty contest to become the new queen. There are forces at work to destroy the Jews. How does God place us here “for such a time as this”? Will you risk something great (and what might that be?) for others?
