When good things happen in our lives we need to remember where they came from!
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about a prideful king and a normal guy. King Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, a powerful nation that conquered Judah. The king took a lot of valuable things from Judah, including strong young men. One of those young men was named Daniel. He was brought to Babylon to work for the king. One day, King Neb had a really crazy dream and he wanted to understand its meaning. He brought in some guys hoping they could interpret the dream. When they couldn’t, King Neb got angry and wanted to hurt people, including Daniel. Daniel prayed and asked God to give him the meaning of the dream. And guess what? God did and Daniel went to the king to share it. The king rewarded Daniel and gave him a powerful position. But, then the king had an even crazier dream and God revealed its meaning to Daniel again. But this time the dream was about King Neb being punished for being prideful. God was going to take away his power until he recognized that everything he had came from God. We need to learn this lesson, too. When we have success or fame, we need to remember to give God the honor, not ourselves.
