Back to Daniel 5

Everything but the kitchen sink. That is what a friend reminded me of when it describes the things worshiped in Daniel 5.

What is striking is that while the gods of stone, wood, iron, bronze, silver, and gold are praised (4,23), the God of Heaven is starkly absent. At lease He seemed to be in the first part of the evening. The end of the evening told a different story.

Verse 23 reminds us in that chapter that God is a God who sees, hears, knows, and holds our life in His hands.

Have you praised that God this morning?
