Rusty here. This week, our basecamp kids remain in Esther. Oh boy, it is interesting. We continue to hear about the ways that God showed up for Esther, even in situations that seem helpless. For example, when Haman tried to pass a decree to hurt all of Esther’s people, it wouldn’t seem possible that Esther could save all of her people. As we read the rest of the story, we see that God uses her to do just that.
Esther was in a scary place. She needed the King to change this decree, but it was her word against the word of his trusted companion. The king was also known for killing those who showed up without being summoned. Through it all, Esther had faith that God would protect her… And…. HE did!
Wow, when Esther obeyed Gods command, God kept her safe. The same applies to us.
Below is a PDF of a crown. Feel free to print it out and let your child decorate it. They can wear it as a reminder that God keeps us safe, just like he did for Queen Esther.
So, put your hooves together in a (mountain top) point and ask, “What’s the Point?”
Your child should respond with this week’s Point, “ God keeps me safe!” The louder the better.
As always, I’ve enjoyed sharing with y’all.
See you next week to discover, know and follow.
