So It Was With Haman

  Psalm 7: 15, 16, "He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate." PATE means the crown of his head. In other words, the evil he prepared for another came to him.

  In the book of Esther we read how Haman was so proud and angry toward Mordecai that he sought every way to destroy him. But his efforts backfired. Can you picture Haman leading the man he hated through the streets in a way that gave Mordecai great honor? Was not Haman hanged upon the gallows of fifty cubits high that he had prepared for Mordecai?

  Evil men will reap what they sow. It may not be in this life totally, but the day of justice will come. But the psalmist assures us that "God judgeth the righteous and God is angry with the wicked every day" (Psalm 7: 11). What a motivation to be righteous before God! Think about that today.
