July 13 // It takes courage to do what is right.

Read Esther 5:7-8 out loud with your family.

Q: Have you ever stood up to a bully?

 

Parent Note: Esther found herself in a position that allowed her to do something other Jews could not do. Going in to talk to the king would put her in danger, but it was a risk she felt was her duty. 

 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

 

Dear Lord, thank You for caring for Your people.
Just like You protected Esther and the Israelites, I know that You will protect me too.
Please help me to be brave to stand up for my faith.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
