Purim - Consequences & Opposition

I became very familiar with Purim while writing and performing multiple Purim dramas over the years as part of congregational celebrations. This year, as I have sought to see the story with fresh eyes, I am drawn to the issue of consequences. There are circumstances which require us to take some sort of action, and there are often consequences if we fail to take that action.

There will always be opposition to those who belong to God and are called to be His representatives here on earth, especially in Israel.

In the story of Esther, the existence of the Jewish people (dispersed in Babylon and Persia) was threatened because of the hatred and arrogance of one man. This man, Haman, was only alive as a consequence of the failure of Israel's king to do what God had commanded many years before. Allow me to explain here.
