He was bringing up Hadassah, that is Esther, the daughter of his uncle, for she had neither father nor mother. The young woman had a beautiful figure and was lovely to look at, and when her father and her mother died, Mordecai took her as his own daughter. (Esther 2:7, ESV) Reading through the story of scripture can sometimes feel more like a fantasy adventure than real life. With amazing miracles and words from God coming down, it can make real life seem dull and silent. I've never seen a burning bush, witnessed a miracle, or taken a long journey. So have you and I ever witnessed God at work? Esther is the story of a hidden God. The most remarkable thing about this book is that the name of God is never mentioned and no one ever prays. In fact, I think in some ways this book gives us the most realistic way that God works in our day. And it is one of the most interesting, engaging, and comical stories in scripture. Take some time this weekend between now and Sunday to read through Esther, and be ready to enter into this engaging story.
