Esther: Surprisingly, the terms “God” and “LORD” do not appear in the Book of Esther and yet one can appreciate God’s hand in all that happens. Esther is proclaimed queen and in very short order her uncle Mordecai warns her of an assassination plot against her husband, the king. As we will see, memories among the powerful run thin unless they are fueled by revenge. Esther, from her youth, was obedient and pure – two qualities which always find recognition.
