Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 264

Scripture Passage: Esther 4:1-17
Great Women Are Saviours
When Mordecai asked Esther to save the Jews, she feared for her life and made excuses. Mordecai responded thus, “For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place…….and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” These words brought forth the saviour in Esther. She vowed to deliver her people in their darkest hour, and sealed that vow with the famous six words, “and if I perish, I perish.”
The lesson here is this; great women are saviours. According to an online dictionary, a saviour is, “a person who saves someone or something from danger or difficulty.” Throughout history, great women have rescued their families and nations from danger and difficulty even at great risk to their own lives. Great women do not sit and watch problems. Great women arise to fix problems. Great women are saviours. Great women are leaders.
Prayer: Father, make me a saviour.
