Daniel 2:24-3:30

I am fascinated and thinking on the dream and subsequent interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Not the political implication but the statement by Daniel that God is the only one who has the wisdom and the king’s response to that information: he bows down and worships Daniel then builds a statue. The king has been given information about the true King, the One with all the wisdom and knowledge; however, he chooses to ignore what Daniel has said.

Can we be like that? Can we be given information that points to God but we then choose to connect that information with the “god” we want to serve instead of the Living God? Who have we been worshiping lately; whose gifts, talents and abilities do we admire that really come from God but we act like they are god like? Are we thanking God for gifting that person or are we worshiping that person? Worse yet, are we discounting the gifts/talents God has given us because we are looking at what someone else has? If we ignore our gifts then we are like the man/woman who buries their talent, even if it is only one.


Grace and peace,

This spoke to me, because I am a God fearing woman. I sit under an awesome Pastor and by obeying God's word and submitting to HIM I will hold strong to my faith.
"For you are a slave to whatever controls you. 20And when people escape from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up with sin and become its slave again, they are worse off than before". And also the part where it says in Proverbs a dog returns to his own vomit. In The Light, M.Q.
