“Have a gallows built, seventy-five feet high, and ask the king in the morning to have Mordecai hanged on it, then go with the king to dinner, and be happy. This suggestion delighted Haman, and he had the gallows built” (Esther 5:14).
Nothing delights ill-will, bitterness more than the thought of crushing the person who appears not to be in awe of it. Beware family and friends who seek only to be loved and liked by us, who advise that the way to happiness lies on a road where a gallows for our enemy has been prepared!
