Esther 3-5
As Esther prepares to meet the king, please take notice of the brilliance of God's word in its narrative - it builds, it creates, it sets tension and expectation, and it creates comparisons and links.

Each time Esther meets Xerxes, you expect here to speak for her people - but the tension builds, over hospitality. And it is very hard to share a meal with your enemy!

Each time Haman speaks, we see the drive of his impulse, and the similarity with Xerxes: both men snap at a simple refusal, both men delight in advice that panders to their desires.

And we finish this section with a 75 foot gallows, and a people in danger, a meal to come, two explosive and indulgent men, and a queen knowing that God's salvation is certain.

Father, thank you that your certain salvation is the context for me to understand who I am, where I am, and what I should do. Amen.
