When The Chickens Come Home To Roost

Greg Laurie 90x115by Greg Laurie

There are certain laws that really don’t change, like the law of gravity. It basically says that things tend to fall downward, or what goes up must come down. There is the second law of thermodynamics, which says that all things are breaking down. Then there is the biblical law of sowing and reaping.

This law is illustrated dramatically in the book of Esther. This Old Testament book tells the true story of King Xerxes who ruled over Persia, the superpower of the day. The king decided to throw a great feast, and all the kingdom was invited. Everyone was getting very drunk, and people do crazy things when they are drunk. So the king decided that he wanted to parade the beautiful Queen Vashti before his subjects. Vashti wanted nothing to do with it, and she flat out refused.
