“There is not a man upon the earth that can tell you what that dream means,” said the Chaldeans.

Then in strolled Daniel with the interpretation.

Can you imagine the pride that would have tried to rule in his heart? None of the Chaldeans could interpret it but Daniel could.

Instead of glorying in himself Daniel chose to exalt God. He thanked him for imparting wisdom upon him. He blessed him. Praised him. Worshipped him.

Daniel did this because he realized that even though he would receive glory on earth that his God in heaven was the author of this success.

Every good and perfect gift comes from God alone. Remind yourself of that when you catch yourself feeling prideful.

Daniel 2:1-23
