This episode of the story demonstrates Esther’s wise tactics whilst taking enormous risks. It also lays bare Haman’s idol of public respect. From it, Colin Adams draws out three important lessons we must learn from Esther. First, we need to both pray and act. Second, we need to grow in wisdom. Finally, we also need to become wise risk takers. We need to be prepared, with wisdom, to step out of our comfort zone as we serve our Lord, who stepped out of His heavenly comfort zone to rescue us.
