Esther's Zeal For Her People
Lesson for June 13, 1948
GEORGE MEREDITH has a line
that runs like this, "God's rar
est blessing is, after all, a good
woman." In this study of Esther.
you may wish to
think of her primar
ily as a courageous
woman most peo
ple do, I guess. But

was a solid good
ness, else she would

One must read the
Book of Esther, of
course, to have any
grasp of this great story. It re
quires but a few minutes, and ev
ery reader will be richly rewarded.
I have a lawyer friend, prodigious
reader, who tells mt that once each
month, for the past SO years, he
has read the Book of Esther.
A OTIEEN WHO WAS BRAVE
DANIEL, we agreed, was a brave
person; but not more brave
than Esther. There is a verse in
Hebrews 13:6 that serves admirably
to interpret this first stage of Es
ther's manifest courage, "The Lord
is my helper."
We go to the palace in Shushan,
where reigned Ahasuerus. His king
dom stretched from India even un
to Ethiopia. His queen, Vashti, re
fused to come before him when he
had made a feast. As a result of
this refusal, the king ordered young
maidens brought before him that he
might choose a new queen. There
was in the court a Jew, Mordecai,
who had been brought there from
Jerusalem. He had in his care the
daughter of bis uncle, a beautiful
maiden, named Esther, Mordecai
saw here a great opportunity, and
he brought her before the king. She
was chosen. This brief sketch ac
counts for her position.
A QUEEN WHO HELPED
HAMAN, who was next to the
king in authority, discovering
that Mordecai was a Jew and was
not worshipping as Haman had com
manded, caused a decree to be is
sued which would put to death all
the Jews In the kingdom. Mordecai,
learning of this depree, sent word
secretly to Esther, urging her to in
tercede on behalf of her people to
Here is the heart of the story.
Space does not permit a detailed re
cital. Is Is sufficient to say that Es
ther, though still in her early twen
ties, managed this delicate situation
with such skill that the gallows
which Haman had built for Mordecai
turned out to be the instrument of
death for Haman and his sons. In
stead of the Jews being slaughtered,
those who had planned the death of
all the Jews lay dead.
ESTHER RISKED ALL AND
WON ALL .
IF EVER there was a perfect illus
tration of staking one's all on
one great moment, Esther, provides
such illustration. "Who knoweth
whether thou art not come to the
kingdom for such a time as this?"
said Mordecai as he bolstered her
It Is such a challenge as young
people may be facing today. Ob
viously, the moment now confront
ing us calls for great faith and great
sacrifice If this world is to be saved
from utter destruction. It may be
that this situation calls for hitherto
unknown tactics. And let us pray
Ood there Is somewhere an Esther.
THE MESSAGE OF ESTHER
WHICH leads me on to suggest
that racial hatred was never
more bitter than at this moment
Unless the winds of God blow, un
less tome mighty manifestation of
divine Intervention Is granted, 'the
world will break up on the rocks of
prejudice and selfishness and am
bition and all the forms and fashions

his wonders to perform." Let us
pray that we may early witness
some mighty stroke of his mercy
and deliverance, ere the night let

A tobacco variety demonstration
has been planned with L. G. Will
iams of Chinquapin, in which 14
varieties of tobacco has been plant

shank soli. The tobacco in this
field in 1946 was a complete loss
as a result of this deadly disease.
Varieties which are generally
grown throughout the county and
those Varieties which are known
to be resistant to black shank are
included in the demonstration. The
