Esther 7– Do Unto Others

In Matthew, Jesus tells us to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  In a very real sense, Haman was living that command.  In his pride and selfishness,  he thought his personal desires and dislikes were more important than the lives of others.  God quickly and completely showed him the folly of his thought.  In a day he went from being a star to being an executed traitor.  Every thought and act he entertained was turned against him and used to sentence him. He honored Mordecai, he was captured for betraying the Jews, he was sentenced after seeking mercy from one he had condemned and he was ultimately impaled by his own torture tool.

God tells us to seek him and his righteousness.  All other things will ne added.  If we seek our own gratification and righteousness, we will never be satisfied and as it conflicts with God’s plan we will be disappointed and in Chaos.  It is simply better to seek him, follow him, honor him and care for his chosen.  Help me, Lord to follow your plan, honor your name and care for your people.

God Bless You

5 King Xerxes asked Queen Esther, “Who is he? Where is he—the man who has dared to do such a thing?” 6 Esther said, “An adversary and enemy! This vile Haman!”  Then Haman was terrified before the king and queen. 7 The king got up in a rage, left his wine and went out into the palace garden. But Haman, realizing that the king had already decided his fate, stayed behind to beg Queen Esther for his life.

8 Just as the king returned from the palace garden to the banquet hall, Haman was falling on the couch where Esther was reclining. The king exclaimed, “Will he even molest the queen while she is with me in the house?” As soon as the word left the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. 9 Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, “A pole reaching to a height of fifty cubits[b] stands by Haman’s house. He had it set up for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.”

The king said, “Impale him on it!” 10 So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai. Then the king’s fury subsided.
