I love the story of Esther in the Old Testament. A stunningly beautiful woman (who knows what that looked like back then?) Esther becomes queen to the powerful king Xerxes. The tale gets dark when the king signs a law that will kill all of Esther’s people. Esther is scared to get involved but her father Mordecai says: ‘surely Esther, you have been placed here for such a time as this?’

How does God view you? I think it’s as someone who is uniquely placed in your family, school, neighbourhood for such a time as this. Do you see yourself as significantly as God does? What could God be calling you to do today?
