WHAT’S THE ANSWER?
Page 35. King Xerxes “remembered” Vashti. Amplified Bible says “earnestly rmembered” like, maybe he missed her, or regretted his harshness towards her.
WHAT’S THE POINT?
P. 36, When someone’s anger subsides, the true emotions are revealed. This can help you empathize with a person of a tough exterior.
P. 36,37 Beth is talking about how the virgins were treated and judged solely on their appearance. “It’s tough being a woman in a world where beauty is a treatment”. People still treat other people according to their outward appearance. Should we react to this injustice by throwing away our Mary Kay? No, keep your make-up on (por favor) but, don’t rely on your looks for your self-confidence. Remember, God looks at the heart and His opinion is the only true one. Oh, and His opinion is that you are His chosen, beloved, forgiven child.
