The Generous King

Standard

Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which BELONGED TO KING AHASUERUS.                              ~Esther 1:9

Those of us who have received a message/sermon from the book of Esther will agree that the focus is on the young, beautiful, virgin. Today I read the book of Esther as I have so many to times before and I recognized the generosity of the king. The above biblical verse notes that Queen Vashti was having a royal party(feast) of her own on her husbands dime; at his expense. Considering the wealth of a king this party was no doubt luxurious – top of the line, no short cuts. Most likely, her royal garments were made of the finest fabrics, and she was adorned with  the most precious of jewels(you feeling the love/generosity towards the queen). She had to be feeling herself(slang). I don’t know about you but it sounds to me as though she was a well kept, spoiled women who had a man that adored her. Adored her so much that he wanted to flaunt her charm and beauty among his guest that were invited to his royal feast.
