“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Haman is a great example of a person sowing to the flesh. He had no desire to serve God. His only desire in life was to be exulted and praised. His heart was wicked. He hated God’s people, the Jews.
So far that sowing has caused him to be humiliated before all the people of Shushan. He was reaping what he had sowed.
We must be careful not to walk in Haman’s footsteps. We should look at Haman’s life and determine to do the opposite.
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” (Colossians 3:23-24)
