Warning Signs of a Leader Out of Control

“Then Haman told them of his great riches, the multitude of his children, everything in which the king had prompted him, and how he had advanced him above the officials and servants of the king . . . “Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate.” Then his wife Zeresh and all his friends said to him, “… in the morning suggest to the king that Mordecai be hanged on it….” And the thing pleased Haman; so he had the gallows made . . . And Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman!” So Haman was terrified before the king and queen . . . So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai.” Esther 5:11,13-14; 7:6 & 10
