Today's reading: Esther 2:1-18

As we move into Esther 2, we finally get to meet our leading lady--Esther. King Ahasuerus is now in search of a new queen, and as a result of the king's order, a young Esther is taken into the king's harem as part of the selection process. It's hard to imagine being thrust into such a situation. Each time I read this account I cringe. But at the same time, I'm struck by the extraordinary way Esther (who was likely in her early teens) handled herself in a foreign environment that had to be scary, lonely and difficult. There are quite a number of lessons we can learn from this God-fearing young lady.

What did you notice about Esther--appearance, status, family situation, virtues, attitude, character--from this passage? What's one lesson that stood out to you from Esther's example about coping with and responding to unexpected and difficult circumstances? Tami

Esther was a beautiful young Jewish virgin who had a good figure.
She was an orphan. Both of her parents had died and she was
cared for my her cousin, Mordecal.
She was pleasant and won favor with Hegai and followed his advice which shows she was obedient.

It made me stop and thank the Lord that I was not born in this kind of culture.
