Many of our life experiences are a result of small decisions that are actually a result of indecision. Lot hesitated when it came to godly choices and he constantly did “almost” enough when it came to godly actions. What can he teach us?
Esther’s story can be seen to parallel the walk of a Christian in thought-provoking and unique ways. What do Esther’s experiences teach us about our faith and our choices?
The book of Esther reads like a movie script, complete with a beautiful, courageous young girl (Esther), a fearless hero (Mordecai), and the dastardly villain (Haman). It’s a story of faith, bravery, suspense, betrayal and palace intrigue with a satisfying ending. How does Esther inspire us today?

If we observe and study their lives we will find a treasure trove of faith strengthening tools and examples for our practical everyday use.
