Lessons from Esther: Esther’s letter

29 Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim. 30 And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth, 31 To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry. 32 And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book. Esther 9:29-32

A second letter, Esther’s letter, is written and sent to all the Jews. This letter is to confirm the days of Purim. She was verifying Moridecai’s letter and encouraging the Jewish community to never forget this time in their history. The letter was sent with “words of peace and truth”.

Jewish communities took heed to this writing and celebrate yearly the victory given to them by the Almighty God in Heaven.

Take a few minutes today to thank God for everything in your life, it may be small, it may be big, it may be good, it may be bad, but in everything there is a lesson. Thank Him for his goodness and graciousness in all trials and tribulations.  

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I Thessalonians 5:18

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Hebrews 13;15

Remember to be thankful!

Have a blessed day,
