Story Focus: In week four, we discover the story of Esther in the Book of Esther. Esther had no idea how God would use her when she was chosen to become Queen of Persia. But, her cousin Mordecai reminded her that God put her in that role to rescue the Jewish people from Haman’s plot. Esther knew what could happen if the king didn’t approve of her asking for his help . . . but she knew how much more was at stake for God’s people if she didn’t try. She found the courage to go to the king and ultimately saved her people.
Bottom Line: : You can do what you should even when you don’t know what will happen. We will all face moments in life when we need to take a risk. Those situations can feel terrifying. We might wish that we could crawl back into bed and hide . . . but more than likely, that won’t be an option. Thankfully, we know that God is with us like God was with Esther. We might not know what will happen, but God does. We can trust God no matter what—to give us the courage we need to face anything in life.
Key Question: : When have you done something you were afraid to do? Acts of courage can come in all shapes and sizes: jumping off the high dive, asking for help, trying a new food. We’ve all faced moments where we’ve had to choose to something that made us scared. We didn’t know how it would turn out, yet we knew we had to try. Remembering those moments can help kids find the courage they need to face their next challenge.
