Belshazzar refused the light he had about the holy God of heaven and died partying. He was unable to read the writing on the wall, which was the judgment of God over his life. By contrast, Daniel took a strong stand for righteousness, refused the king’s gifts, and was exalted (and delivered) by God. With the light you have received, have you responded like Daniel or Belshazzar?
The welcome is from Psalm 19 and Revelation 22 from our beloved sister, Kathryn. The picture is Rembrandt’s painting entitled “Belshazzar’s Feast.”
