Children's Lessons

Esther: The Queen of Persia | Esther 1-10


Lesson Goal:

To help children understand God's amazing protection of His people.


Lesson Overview:

Read the book of Esther: The king was in search of a wife, and Esther's beauty qualified her for the position. She was also a brave woman and a Jew. Haman, one of the king’s high-ranking officials, devised a way to kill off the Jews with the king’s permission. Mordecai, Esther’s uncle, figured out a way to stop Haman’s plan from succeeding, and Esther played the key role in defending the Jews.

Memory Verses:

 John 10:29 (ERV)

29 My Father is the one who gave them to me, and he is greater than all. No one can steal my sheep out of his hand.

Meaning:  Once we are saved, we cannot lose our salvation. Nothing can separate us from the love of God.


The Big Idea:

The evil plans of men will never defeat the plans God has for those who love Him.  Sometimes it is hard to see God working in our lives, but that does not mean He isn’t there.  In the entire book of Esther, God’s name is not mentioned once, but we can see His work throughout this story. Nothing that led up to Esther being put in the position to protect the Jews was a coincidence—it was God’s plan.  God has a plan for each of us. His plans for our lives are good, and we can trust that God will help us to be successful. God is always with us.



Dear God, You rescued Esther and protected a whole nation of people because You are loving and merciful. Help us to rest in Your protection and to be brave for You. We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
