Purim is rapidly approaching, and there are so many amazing lessons to glean from the Purim story.
Today, I focus on one of the less spoken about lessons; Haman’s great flaw that brought about his demise, which paralleled the mistake that Adam made in the Garden of Eden. If we can learn from their mistake, we’ll learn to appreciate all the good we have in our relationships, not hyper-focus on the small negative aspects and we’ll build the most beautiful relationships we can possibly have.
