Esther 7:10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.
Haman had grand plans to destroy Mordecai. Certainly, it would work out. But it didn’t. He was a very corrupt and wicked individual. He thought he could game the system. He thought he could manipulate everything for his purposes. But!
There is a Bible principle that says if you lay the trap, dig the pit, will fall into their pit. The stone you try to roll down on another will come back on you. If you live by the sword you will die by the sword would be another way of expressing it. Your violence will fall back on you.
Haman desires the destruction of Mordecai. The thought of his death consumes him. He has built the gallows for Mordecai but will now die on his own gallows.
Another familiar way of expressing this truth is that your sin will find you out or you reap what you sow.
Focus your life on living for God. Do right. Do not let hatred so consume your heart that you will not be able to do right. The consequences of bitterness and hatred are horrible.
