Devotional: Let the Punishment Fit the Crime

Heritage Presbyterian Church

Scripture – Esther 7: 1-10

Theme: When Queen Esther convinced her King that he had been tricked by Haman into ordering the execution of all her people, the King was outraged. Haman threw himself on the Queen’s couch to beg her forgiveness…just as the King came back in the room! Haman was quickly hanged using the same gallows that were to be used in executing the Jews. Is this fair? Is it just? Does this punishment fit this crime?
