           Today we celebrate our mothers! However, perhaps not everyone is celebrating his or her mother for a variety of
reasons. Today, we are examining motherhood as witnessed by two queens in God’s word. Jezebel as the queen of Israel was
the “mother” of the nation, but she was evil personified. She cared nothing for anyone but herself. She served Satan, she
persecuted, burdened, and killed her people. Esther was also a queen and presented a very different image for the mother of
a nation. Esther was selfless and loved God. Esther faced the threat of death in order to save the lives of her people. Both of
these queens were Mothers of nations, but only one is honored and celebrated even today by her people.
