The Story

There’s an important story about honesty throughout the book of Esther.  Haman has just been promoted as the king’s most important adviser.  Haman lets this go to his head and commands that everyone bow to him.  But there’s one man who won’t: Mordecai.  Haman is so angry that he vows to destroy not just Mordecai, but all of his people, the Jews.  Little does Haman know, but Mordecai has family in high places.  Queen Esther risks everything to save her people.  Once her plan with Mordecai is set in motion, Haman’s dishonesty to hurt others ends up hurting himself instead.

Bottom Line: When you lie to help yourself, you hurt yourself instead. Sometimes we have a tendency to lie in order to make ourselves look good.  But we can’t  keep the lie for long.  Eventually we’ll be found out and our lie will only hurt ourselves.
