IF YOU WERE TO BE QUEEN VASHTI, WHAT WILL YOU DO?


Esther 1:12 But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king's commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him. 

Everybody love the story of Esther, one of my favorite book of the Bible is The book of Esther. We all love to be like her, we love to tell our children her stories. Her story is good to hear for it has a lot of lessons in it.

The king ordered Queen Vashti to come and showcase her beauty to the whole empire. She refused the king's command, some says it was because she was proud.
But let's look at it from another angle, the king was drunk with the others in the royal kingdom, what do you imagine could have happened to the queen if she should not refuse the order?

Put yourself in her shoes. Would you love to be humiliated in front of everybody?
"Whenever men are overcome with wine, there is grave peril for women. Coarseness, indelicacy, and impurity troop in at the door, which has been unlocked by the excess of wine. Who can tell the anguish which has been caused to women, children, and the dumb creation through the intemperance of man! Here is given a glimpse of a noble woman, who respected herself too highly to yield to a demand, wholly foreign to the customs of the time, which forbade women to appear in public. Of course the king was incensed, all the more so because he knew that he was in the wrong. He had command over 127 provinces, but he could not rule his own spirit, and the sense of moral weakness is always irritating." F. B. Meyer
God has a plan for everybody. That confusion was created amidst the kingdom to bring in Esther.
