The Writing is On the Wall

Dear Mosaic Family , Have you heard these phrases before?

  • "Your days are numbered."
  • "The writing is on the wall."
  • "You have been weighed and found wanting."

All three phrases come from Daniel 5. All three have made their way into the public imagination of our culture. All three pack a powerful emotional punch. These phrases are deeply moving because they communicate some of the most profound, self-evident truths about our existence. Our days are truly numbered (but by whom?), The writing is on the wall (but what does it mean?). Deep down inside, if we're honest, we know we are being weighed (by whom?) and we don't measure up (to what?).

So what do we do with these truths? Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die? That's what the king does in Daniel 5, and we see how foolish it ultimately is. He sees the writing on the wall and continues boozing to blind himself to the more uncomfortable facts of reality.

How then shall we live? Join us tomorrow as we look at the powerful story in Daniel 5 (read it and meditate on it).

Praying for you, Pastor Jan
