Pride and King Nebuchadnezzar!!!

Posted: February 3, 2014 in Staff & Ministry Leaders

During Kids Life Club on Wednesday nights we have been talking  Daniel.  What example of a man to look at as a man following God.

One of our lessons was when King Nebuchadnezzar had his vision of the tree touching the sky. (Daniel 4)  Daniel informs King Nebuchadnezzar that this vision is about how great and strong he has become, his greatness and his dominion extends to distant parts of earth.  The vision said that King Nebuchadnezzar would be driven away from his kingdom and will eat grass like cattle and be drenched with the dew of heaven.  Twelve months later  Nebuchadnezzar said “Is this not the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of MY majesty?”  While words were still on his lips all of his royal authority was taken away from him for seven years Nebuchadnezzar, and he ate grass like cattle, grew feathers of an eagle, and his nails were like the claws of a bird.

What is the lesson in this story??

We all have skills, sports, creative skills, leading, encouraging and so on…It is great to be good at something.  But we need to give God the credit for the skill. God created us and gave us those skills!!   We need to remember to give God the credit for our skills, and use them to Glorify Him.

Be careful the minute we start taking credit for our own skills, God will bring us down just like King Nebuchadnezzar.
