Thursday, November 28th: Daniel 5, 2 Peter 2, Psalms 119:113-128, Proverbs 28:19-20 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Daniel 5:1-31, 2 Peter 2:1-22, Psalm 119:113-128, Proverbs 28:19-20

That very night Belshazzar, the Babylonian king, was killed.
Daniel 5:30

A few interesting things from our Old Testament reading today... 

- Belshazzar hadn't learned the important lesson from Nebuchadnezzer, to humble himself and serve God, instead of his own worldly desires. He paid for this in the end. 
- Daniel had done a great deed and helped Nebuchadnezzer come to know the Lord, and was rewarded. But when Belshazzar came into power Daniel was forgotten until Belshazzar needed help, then he looked for and found Daniel. Daniel was humble and didn't need worldly rewards, he just wanted to please God.
