Daniel – Thu – 22-06-16

During part of my youth, we lived in the country. Sometimes my brother and I would pluck long stalks of grass. You know, the ones with a big seed head on the end? We’d clamp the stem end in our teeth and let the head hang out front. I don’t know why. I guess we thought it looked cool.

But we never really ate grass. But the king of Babylon did. Listen to Daniel 4:29-32, ‘Twelve months later, as the king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, “Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?”

The words were still on his lips when a voice came from heaven, “This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar: Your royal authority has been taken from you. You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like cattle. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes.”

The king refused to acknowledge God’s blessing in his success. So he learned humility by grazing on grass. May we be humble and realize God blesses us with success. Chew on this thought today. It’s a lot better that eating grass!
