Day 04 – Your Favourite Book
Today is my favourite book, but to be honest I don’t have one. Well actually I guess the Bible is pretty high up there because it’s got all sorts of different stories and advice within it’s pages. So my favourite bible story is Joseph – the fact that even through all the rubbish that happens to him he’s still strong and follows God.
Second favourite or equal favourite is the story of Esther – she wasn’t anyone special in the sense that she wasn’t a princess or a high politician – not that you had lady politicians then but she did do something amazing.
Esther becomes Queen and must tell King Xerxes (or Ahaseurus depending on which version you’re reading) that his prime minister is plotting to kill the Jews (Boo!!! Hiss!!!). Esther to the rescue though, she stands up to the king and with some help from her ladies in waiting (of sorts) she with help from God gets it sorted. (Aah! One day I will explain about Purim! Maybe in February when it actually happens!)
There is a Veggie Tales version from what I’ve heard where rather than Haman (the Prime Minister) trying to kill the Jews he’s trying to banish them to the Island of Perpetual Tickling which I think is an awesome twist on the story.
