Poetic Justice
October 25, 2011

For nearly a year, a former publishing colleague lived under a cloud of fear that he would be fired. A new boss in the department, for reasons unknown, began filling his personnel file with negative comments. Then, on the day my friend expected to lose his job, the new boss was fired instead.

When the Israelites were taken as captives to Babylon, a Jew named Mordecai found himself in this kind of situation. Haman, the highest noble of King Xerxes, expected every royal official to kneel down and honor him, but Mordecai refused to bow to anyone but God (Est. 3:1-2). This outraged Haman and he set out to destroy not only Mordecai but every Jew in the whole Persian empire (vv.5-6). Haman convinced Xerxes to sign a decree authorizing the destruction of all Jews and started building a gallows for the execution of Mordecai (5:14). But, in a startling turn of events, Haman was executed on the gallows he had built for Mordecai, and the Jewish people were spared (7:9-10; 8).

In literature, this is called poetic justice. Not everyone gets justice in such dramatic fashion, but Scripture promises that God will one day avenge all injustice (Rom. 12:19). While we wait, we are to do what we can to work for justice and leave the results in God’s hands.

The call for justice must be strong
To show what’s right, to thwart what’s wrong,
But let’s reject the smallest part
Of vengeance harbored in the heart. —D. De Haan

The scales of Divine justice always balance—
if not here, then hereafter.

Read: Esther 3:1-11; 7:1-10

“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. —Romans 12:19
Bible in a year:
Jeremiah 6-8; 1 Timothy 5

Living temporarily in Lewes, DE a next door neighbor and I made the trek to the Air Mobility Museum a couple of weeks ago. What a wonderful place to visit and to think it is run by all volunteers. They man the buildings and many are involved in the restoration of the aircraft. The most beautiful aircraft there for me was the tri tailed Constellation. What a magnificent aircraft. And yes, FR are is very slow this evening.

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

~ Today...Sunny. Highs in the upper 60s.
Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight... Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 40s.
Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

It's only Tuesday but I feel like it's been a long week.
Boss man is on his way back into town
so this may be the last quiet time I'll have this week.
Finally caught on most of the workload
and now is the time to work on the FY12 documents.

Time to make my rounds and then back to work.
But, you stay right where you are.
Don't touch that dial. And, remember – I’ll be watching!

The FR Canteen is

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee,
pancakes,
conversation,
silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above Honoring those who have served before.
