We all make mistakes, and it's really important to learn from them!
In today’s lesson, we’re learning about a crazy story that involved another king and Daniel. King Belshazzar came to power after king Nebuchadnezzar, the king we learned about in another lesson. King Belshazzar threw a party for his friends. He used the special cups that King Neb stole from the temple in Jerusalem. They also worshipped false gods. King Belshazzar made a few mistakes. First, those cups that were stolen from the temple were special. They came from God’s house so God wasn’t happy to see them disrespected. Second, the king worshipped false gods. You would think this king would’ve learned from what happened to King Neb when he didn’t worship God. During the party, a hand suddenly appeared on the wall and wrote a riddle. Everyone was really scared! The king wanted to know what the riddle meant and only Daniel could tell him. The riddle was similar to the dream King Neb had. God reminded King Belshazzar that he is the real God and he has the power to make any king strong or weak. King Belshazzar didn’t learn from what happened to Neb and his power was taken away, too. Let’s learn from this story and be wise kids who learn from past mistakes.
