Our verse of reference in Esther 7 is: 

 “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!”  (Esther 7:9 NIV).


What goes around comes around
historical commentary. – Is proven daily love of God toward us, and yet we do not think in their favor and are indifferent to their pleas. He tries to impress us with his spirit of tenderness, love and tolerance, but only if we recognize the signs of His goodness and soon we realize the lesson of love that he wants us to learn. Some, like Haman, forget all the favors of God, because Mordecai is before them and not punished, because their hearts are full of enmity and hatred, rather than love, the spirit of our dear Redeemer who gave His precious life by his enemies. Profess to have the same Father, be heading to the same homeland immortal, enjoy the same solemn faith and believe the same test message, and yet many are at variance with each other like quarrelsome children. Some who are working in the same line of work have differences with others, and, therefore, are at variance with the spirit of Christ. The love of praise has corrupted many hearts. 4T 220.

Eradicate the enmity and hatred. – Was such that Haman had hatred for Mordecai, who not only wanted her dead, but went so far as to plan the way he wanted to see him die. He built a gallows 25 feet high, because he wanted a large public to observe his death. Are we wasting our precious time planning return evil that someone did? May God these bad thoughts away.
Hung on his own gallows. – Harbona, one of the eunuchs, told Xerxes that Haman had built a gallows for Mordecai killing, who had protected the king’s life. This is one of the clearest retributive punishment in biblical history: DYING IN YOUR OWN JIB. Remember the golden rule: “All men want them to do to you, so do you also to them” (Matthew 7:12). 

Our beloved father. Today, we ask you to remove all hatred of ourselves, we hold a grudge or resentment against some people. Place forgiveness and love so we can build peace. By jesus, amen.
