"Mordecai wouldn't do it, wouldn't bow down and kneel"~Esther
So the king's right hand man financed an operation with the king's blessing to kill Mordecai and all the Jews. BAD choice! Esther who is a Jew and the king's main squeeze gets wind of it. Mordecai instructs her to her duty as a Jew.
Esther sent back her answer to Mordecai: "Go and get all the Jews living in Susa together. Fast for me. Don't eat or drink for three days, either day or night. I and my maids will fast with you. If you will do this, I'll go to the king, even though it's forbidden. If I die, I die."~Esther
As the story goes and you really should read the whole story of Esther found in your Bible. It is incredible! Pick a character. Put yourself in their place. Live their life, if you dare!
What have you put before God in your life? To what have you bowed down?
