WEEK 2 - Sept 15th
THEME: Esther Ch. 2:21 and Ch.3
Kinder Box: “P”
Mystery Bag: Galatians 5:24-25
Read Esther Chapter 2:21 thru Chapter 3. This week’s story has some ups and downs in it. We start with Mordecai becoming a hero to the King and we end with Mordecai’s refusal to bow, causing all Jews to have the death penalty! The whole Jewish Nation was decreed by the King to be killed! That is some twist of events! We probably can’t even imagine being in a situation like Mordecai, but we do have up and down times in our lives. We might be invited to a birthday party, and then we get sick and miss out on all the fun. Whatever the situation we find ourselves in, we must remember that, as Christians, our life belongs to God. We must remember we serve a loving God who also knows what is best for us. We serve a God who knows the future, and we can trust Him. The Bible says to always be thankful, that means even when things don’t go the way we plan or the way we want. We thank God because we trust Him with our lives and our goal in life is to make God happy. Our sinful nature wants our focus on making ourselves happy and for everything in our life to be perfect all the time. Our sinful nature has lots and lots of wants, and it is never satisfied and never fulfilled and always wanting, wanting, wanting! If we live to please ourselves, we will never be happy and nothing will ever be good enough, but if we change our focus to pleasing God, our best is always enough. Then God will fill you with His peace and His joy and those 2 things are greater than anything this world can offer!
