Discussion Questions:

  • Who is your favorite superhero and why?

  • Justice was served to Esther, Mordecai, and Haman, but all in different ways. What is your favorite “Justice Junkie” moment from chapters 5-7?

  • Have you had a moment where you sought justice without waiting on the Lord’s guidance? Or, think of an instance when you allowed God to bring justice instead of taking matters in your own hands. What were the results in each scenario?

  • Compare the following passages. What do the differences between these reactions teach you about the goodness of God? Esther 4:3 VS. Esther 8:16

  • Pray for patience and trust in times of trial and for the strength to lean into the sovereignty of God’s plan.
