We all like the idea of fairy tales coming true, but we realize that’s seldom the case in real life. Here before us in the Bible is a story that reads like a fairy tale, but it actually happened. There are no fairies, no witches, no princes, and no mermaids. But there is a beautiful orphan girl named Esther who wins a beauty contest and becomes a queen. There is also an evil man who plots the destruction of her people. But because of her bravery, she saves her nation, and they really do live happily ever after.
