One of the primarly lessons we receive from this story, found in the book of Esther, is that God is always in control.

— Haftarah Shabbat HaChodesh: Ezekiel 45:16 — 46:18

From the fact that the commandment to observe the Shabbat precedes the building of the Mishkan, the sages concluded that labor is of value only if it can have a sacred as well as a secular purpose; otherwise, it is innately trivial - all our labor for the earthly things is just vanity and striving after wind...
