Renungan harian alkitab, Esther 4, kamis; unselfish Esther, ‘Esther yang tidak egois’

Esther 4:15-17 (NKJV)  Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai:

“Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

So Mordecai went his way and did according to all that Esther commanded him.

Esther adalah dengan kualitas karakter yg sangat baik, ia tidak Egois! Bahkan ia rela mengorbankan nyawanya demi umat Tuhan , saudara saudari satu suku dan bangsanya!

Esther sangat cantik rupawan, bahkan ia sudah menggantikan posisi ratu vashti di istana, dia sudah menjadi makmur, kaya raya dan hidup sangat nyaman.

Para pembaca terkasih, jika wanita egois dalam posisi Esther, maka pastinya menolak untuk menolong umat yahudi, karena apa untungnya buat dia , justru ia bisa kehilangan nyawanya! Tapi Esther tidak demikian, ia mengasihi Tuhan dan mengasihi sesamanya , Ia rela mempertaruhkan nyawanya demi saudara sebangsanya.
