Once upon a time, in the land of Persia, there was a beautiful girl named Esther. She lived with her cousin Mordecai who had taken care of her since she was a little girl. One day, King Xerxes was looking for a new queen, so he held a beauty contest. Esther was chosen to be the new queen, and she became very popular with the king and his people.
However, the king’s advisor, Haman, was very angry because Mordecai would not bow down to him. Haman hated Mordecai and all the Jews, so he convinced the king to issue a decree that all Jews in Persia were to be killed. When Esther found out about this, she knew she had to do something to save her people.
Esther went to the king and bravely told him about Haman’s plan. The king was shocked and furious, and he immediately issued another decree to stop the attack on the Jews. Haman was arrested and executed, and the Jews were saved. Esther’s bravery and quick thinking saved her people and showed that she was a true leader. Her story teaches us about the importance of courage and faith in difficult times.
Despite the danger, Esther was willing to stand up for what was right and risk her own life to save her people. She serves as an inspiration to us all, reminding us that we too can be brave and have faith in times of difficulty. The story of Esther reminds us that God is always with us, watching over us and giving us the strength to do what is right.
