Queen Esther Saves Her People

What’s the difference between courage and bravery? 

Bravery is facing something scary without being scared.

Courage is facing that fear even though you are afraid. 

The children in our care are more likely going to need to be courageous than they are going to be brave. My mind turns to prophecies in the Bible I can see being played out every single day and I ask myself, “How close are we to the end? How courageous do my children need to be?” 

This story shows Esther being courageous, not brave. She was scared, but in spite of her fears, she did the right thing. Let’s use this story to teach the importance of being courageous.
