Bible Text: Daniel 4:19-27 |


Pride is independence from God. King Nebuchadnezzar, with all of his power and wealth, could do what he wanted. He acted like he didn't need God. Then God got his attention by a vivid and terrifying dream. It was a dream about judgement, where his kingdom would be temporarily removed from him until he acknowledged his dependence on God. Daniel, in prophetic fashion, delivered the bad news to the king. Sometimes each of us may be called to confront sin in someone else's life. If and when that happens, confront the person with grace and truth. Remember to lead with/start with grace.
