The story of Esther reads like a modern-day Hollywood drama or maybe a Shakespearean epic. The characters are rich, the plot is dynamic, and the scope of the story reaches across the Persian empire. The narrative is densely packed into 10 chapters and we could learn many things from Esther's life, or from her uncle Mordecai, or from the foreign king and his advisor Haman. However, as we look closely at just four verse - Esther 4:12-16 - we find a very important truth worth remembering. It's all about how we make decisions in our world today, about how we are to act as God's people, like Esther, while living in a place, like the court of the foreign king of Persia, that does not understand who we are or where our allegiance lies. Listen as we explore Esther's life and discover how we can be "shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves" in our lives today.
