Isn’t that the truth about all of sin? James tells us in his epistle,
“Temptation comes from the
lure of our own evil desires. These evil desires lead to evil actions, and evil actions lead
to death.”
(James 1:14-15, NLT)InEsther: A Woman of Strength and Courage,Charles Swindoll writes:
In my Bible I have circled the words: “Haman sought to destroy all the Jews.”
Be-
cause you, see, that’s the way evil is.
It grows in an exaggerated manner. Thus, Ha-
man’s not satisfied to kill Mordecai or to make his life miserable.
 
He’s now on a self 
-appointed mission, not unlike Adolph Hitler in the 1930s and 1940s, to kill all of 
Mordecai’s people.”
(64-65)
 
Haman had an enemy … and he allowed his feelings about his enemy to control him.
 
Who did he believe his enemy was?
Warren Wiersbe says this:
Everything about Haman is hateful; you can’t find one thing about this man worth
 praising. In fact, everything about Haman, God hated!
 Read this verse from Proverbs and mentally consider how each of these things are repre-
sented in Haman’s life.
“There are six things the Lord hates – 
no, seven things He de-tests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord 
among brothers” 
(5:16-19,NLT). Haman believed his enemy was the Jews.
In acting against the Lord’s chosen people, he
became an enemy of God.
 
Anything you read stand out to you about him?
