Esther… 3

2:16-17. The king was supposed to go through a list of beauty queens (2:4) and select the best of the lot for a queen but the pageantry ended abruptly when he encountered Esther. Was it because of her beauty? I think not; the qualification for being on the list at all was beauty, plus they were all given beauty treatments which made up for any “short comings” for a whole year (2:12). Possibly, the king found something in Esther he didn’t find in others he’d seen and didn’t bother looking any further. Could that be the humble submission?
