You Were Created For Such A Time...

We read in the wonderful Book of Esther:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14)

You have come into this human existence at this time and in this place for a special purpose. What is that purpose?

What makes you sing?
What makes you cry?
What breaks your heart?

That is your purpose. Discover what needs healing and go out and do what you can. Even the smallest of efforts combined can change minds and hearts.

“And seeing the crippled, the beggar and the beaten, the seeker cried, ‘Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?’ And God said, ‘I did do something. I made you.’” ~ Sufi Teaching
