A Tale of the Scale

Bible Text: Daniel 5 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels

The story of Daniel 5 is clear enough: a proud ruler doesn’t take God seriously, but understands his own power and wealth as the source of greatness. God puts an end to it, and the writing is on the wall. But how did a ruler who actually knew better get that far gone? Sin and pride deceived him, even though God offered opportunities to change. That should keep even those of us who are not kings and queens wary, because sin and pride could deceive us, too, and the only way out is the grace of God.
