Moment of Wisdom – Vashti Dilemma
Scripture Reference: “Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets” – Proverb 1:20
The Bible is full of examples of men and women who failed and many who succeeded in their lives and callings. One of such women who we must learn from is Queen Vashti. She started as a queen but ended up losing her crown. We read her story in the book of Esther, chapter 1, verses 5-12. Her husband, the king, had sent for her to show off her beauty to his officials but she refused to heed the king’s order and in verses 19-20, we see the consequence of her action – she was stripped off her position.
We really don’t have details of why she refused to go, it could be that she was carried away with her own friends and feastings that she took the king’s order for granted or maybe she didn’t like the way the order was made.
Well, it really doesn’t matter the reasons, the fact was that she lost her position. In the same vein, some people miss so many blessings because they couldn’t discern the significance of the moment.
There are some moments in our lives that we must grab and not pass off with carelessness or levity.
Daily digest: Wives, please never forget that the king in your room is not the same as the king on the throne.
Prayer: Father, I respect You above all else and desire for You to teach me Your ways, which is wisdom. I know that Your wisdom is always pure, peace-loving, considerate, full of mercy, and impartial. I ask Holy Spirit to teach my mind to always think in those ways because I know that is how wise people think.
