Pageant Queen with a Purpose, #15

The king loves Esther. Even though she was not supposed to go to him, she did and the king responded out of love smd concern. Read Esther 5:1-3.

Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king’s palace in front of the king’s rooms, and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king extended to Esther the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter. Then the king said to her, “What is troubling you, Queen Esther? And what is your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be given to you.”
Esther 5:1‭-‬3 NASB1995

When we come to God out of our need, God responds to us with love and compassion. He knows we need Him and even though we deserve death and judgment, He has mercy on us and calls us to him. Are we returning to Him?
