Vashti


As I started reading the book of Esther, I wasn't drawn to the story of Esther, but the story of Vashti.  There was a big part of me that wanted to shout go VASHTI for not being displayed for her looks and standing up for herself! 

As I thought more about this, is that what God choose for her?  Clearly there was his hand in this for Esther to come in to the King's presence to save her people, but maybe that isn't the only reason, maybe it was for Vashti too, so take a stand and value her self (and model for other women) how to be cared for as a person created by God.
