Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 257

Scripture Passage: Esther 4:1-16
Great Women Are Selfless
When Mordecai approached Esther and asked her to go in to speak to the king on behalf of the Jews, she feared for her life. But Mordecai made it clear that she had no way of escape and at that point, Esther made a decision. She said, “go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day; I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.” This decision resulted in the salvation and preservation of an entire nation.
The lesson here is this; great women are selfless. They seek to pursue the good of others above theirs. Esther put the needs of her nation before hers. Selflessness always leads to greatness.
Prayer: Father, help me to be selfless.
