UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: Ignoble people often seem to attain great power and wealth. What evidence is there that people will receive the recompense their evil deeds deserve? The story of Esther’s triumph over Haman provides assurance that evil does not prevail.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: Despite the laws intended for their downfall, the Jews were permitted to live and put to death their foes. The tables were turned on Haman’s plot; retributive justice was seen to be done. Human agents were the unwitting instruments of one who was the unseen ruler of the universe. In the end, God is going to win.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we thank you this day for watching over us. We are confident that your guiding hand has protected us from dangers seen and unseen. Even when we have walked in the shadow of death, you have been present to keep hurt and harm away from us. Help us love those who would do us harm, and forgive those who go out of their way to hurt us. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, we pray. Amen.
