Resources and talents in our world are not distributed evenly. Some people work hard to achieve a concentration of resources or talents while others are denied such opportunities. In some circumstances, we accept such inequities as appropriate; as when a parent has authority over a small child. Yet, that same inequity can become an injustice when a parent abuses or neglects their child. How does the church respond to such imbalances?
1. Thank God but protect your position?
2. Sell everything & give money to the poor?
3. Accept place in world as God’s design?
4. Use your place in world to right wrongs?
5. Help others when no risk is involved?
6. Expect to be served or seek to serve others?
“Perhaps you have come to royal dignity for just such a time as this.” (Esther 4:14b). Mordecai raises this consideration for Esther before she risks her life to approach the king with her plea to save her people. Like Joseph, Moses, & later Jesus, Esther must decide how to use her position of privilege. We, too, face the same choice in the church every day.
