Who doesn't love a rags to riches story? Who's greatest hopes and dreams don't include "and then I was crowned ROYALTY!" More than once, that exact story happened in scripture. One of the most famous was when it happened to an orphan girl named Esther. She was a commoner, until the day she won the beauty contest that eventually made her the Queen. But her royalty comes with a high price. Her people are under fire, and life is getting hard. So for her, this crown bears a heavy weight. She can't make this about Esther, this has to be for a greater good. For 3 weeks we're going to study her life, and see what ours should look like, because we wear a similar crown.
