A good story usually has an interesting plot with twists and turns, maybe a surprise ending, a hero, a villain, and a little romance. The story of Esther has all this and more. But more importantly, it is the story of the great God who saves His people. Even though His name is not mentioned once in the book, His hand is all over the events of this story. Through this growth narrative Bible lesson and series, God’s sovereignty is taught and emphasized to the children. God kept His promise to preserve His people and send the Savior. This is something to celebrate!
Scripture: Esther 1:1—2:20
Memory Verse: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)
