Chapter 5 gives us yet another window into the dangers of the subtle pride & arrogance that lurks in every human heart. This text teaches us that when God speaks, we should listen. Although God may not write a message for you on a wall, He’s written you a book called the Bible. This chapter also teaches us that God’s justice & judgment are very real. This should compel us to number our days, and live wisely & winsomely in light of the coming judgment day of Christ. The good news of the gospel is that those who are in Christ will be vindicated on the day of judgment because King Jesus has already paid the penalty for their sin & rebellion against God. Jesus is the true & better King and there is no meaningful life outside of Him!
