Home Sweet Home #360

Esther: Purim: The Charm of Home
Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home! Today is Purim, this holiday celebrates Esther's story in the Bible. The book of Esther is about a Jewish orphan girl who rose up to become a Queen of Persia. She had faith in God so strong that her actions of intercession delivered her people from genocide. (Actions prove your faith.) Esther is the only book in the Bible that doesn't mention God, but God approves of Esther's actions that is why she is allowed this book in the Bible. She models biblical womanhood. The holiday of Purim was established during Esther's time to celebrate how God delivered his people.
There is a stark contrast to the two women in the story. The reigning Queen Vashti is not obedient and she gets exiled from the kingdom. Esther is faithful and obedient and gets married to the king and crowned in the kingdom. Esther glorifies God by her actions.
This post and A Woman of Virtue are for all of you women out there. Jesus is reaching out to you with this scripture and teaching you what he wants in a woman to glorify God.

There are always a lot of great posts here at the Home Sweet Home party.  Here are a few that caught my eye.
