Josh Waidley speaks on the magnitude of Esther's decision to use her power and influence to defend the weak and oppressed in Esther 4. Josh posed these four reflection questions near the end of the sermon: 1. Am I conscious of the ways my decisions affect others?
2. What would it look like to make decisions in the full embrace of my identity as a beloved child of God?
3. What opportunities do I have, especially if I am in a position of power, privilege, or influence, to make decisions that use that power to empower others — even if it is at my own expense?
4. What is at stake for others if I do not?
