Life Is A Gift

Let your gifts be for yourself, or give your rewards to someone else!  Daniel 5:13-30  I really like Daniel’s attitude.  I believe the story that follows his statement to King Belshazzar is a lesson in learning from other peoples’ past experiences. It is to help us understand that what God reveals for one of us is a revelation for all of us. Sometimes, by God’s grace we are allowed to see various things happen without having to personally experience it. We owe it to ourselves to transform our own lives according to the grace that God provides through others who have gone before us. We don’t know that tomorrow we will have an opportunity to unbind ourselves from the things of the world. Daniel knew that life itself is a gift and each day it offers many rewards. God only asks that we honor him above all of them. The good news is that today if the writing is on the wall, through Christ we don’t have to lose our lives.
