Esther…who knows…maybe you were elevated to this place for such a time as this. Know that if you do not do it, someone else can be put in your place. (adapted from Esther 4:14)
You’re quite comfortable now aren’t you? Once you were invisible, but now you have been groomed and shined to perfection. You have everything you could have imagined and more. You’re the Queen.
Oh but wait. What about your people? I know you didn’t forget about them because we’re talking about your family here. But, maybe you hadn’t really considered them either. I know you appreciate where you are, but we all have a tendency to forget to think back.
Maybe the point of you being elevated to greatness wasn’t so that you could lay on your pillows being fanned all day (although I’m certain it’s a perk that you just get used to over time). Maybe it wasn’t about you at all. Maybe it was to save them.
So, Esther, what are you gonna do about it?
