A King Who Showed His Glory

To read the Bible in a year, read Esther 1–3.
The Book of Esther begins with the telling of the glories of King Ahasuerus of Persia (Esther 1:1–3). He made a feast to show, “the riches of his glorious kingdom and the splendor of his excellent majesty for many days, one hundred and eighty days in all” (Esther 1:4). That was the easy part, because objects cannot object. However, he wanted to show something later, but it was not an object and she objected. So begins the story of the Book of Esther. A king liked to show his trophies, but one of his trophies did not like to show herself. Working with people and objects require different skills, because people are not objects.
How do you treat the people in your life, especially your family? Are they just objects to you?
