You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.

– Daniel 5:23b (NIV)

Today’s commentary

One of the judgments that Daniel gave to Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, was that he worshipped his possessions. Like Belshazzar, we need to be careful of what we praise. What thoughts dominate our mind the most? What we think of the most, or what we fear losing the most, is what we actually worship. Remembering that God holds our life in His hands helps us to place our attention on the things that really matter.
