  3. Yes, he was very angry when he heard of Haman’s wicked plot.
  4. He was hanged on the gallows that he had intended for Mordecai.

Discuss/Consider

  1. The Bible clearly teaches that in the end, all wickedness will be addressed and judged. But right now it seems that people get away with lots of evil. When we as believers are witnesses to some evil deed, what should our response be? See Luke 12:2 and Ephesians 5:11.
  2. There is a huge emphasis on tolerance in today’s culture. Matthew 7:1, “Judge not that you be not judged,” is often misquoted by people with the “anything goes” mindset. Discuss the original context of this verse. Are we as believers to judge wrongdoers?

Challenge

  1. Read Proverbs 26:27 and Galatians 6:7. In this chapter Haman reaped what he had sown. Use this principle to check your motives this week.

Key Verses

  • “If it pleases the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request.” Esther 7:3
  • “Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.” Proverbs 26:27
