“Is not this great Babylon that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power and the honour of my majesty?” This arrogant remark bought Nebuchadnezzar to his knees and his great Babylon has since become a heap of ruins.

Today we live in a bustling world bent on the pursuit of their own pleasures and their activities will have as much lasting value as Nebuchadnezzar’s hanging gardens. For a time, his hanging gardens made his homesick wife happy, but she too has mouldered into dust and her love for her mountains died with her.

The hopes, the dreams, the goals and ambitions of mankind are as trivial as Nebuchadnezzar’s hanging gardens, yet these things tend to completely dominate the lives of almost every human being. Only a few learn the lesson God taught Nebuchadnezzar.

The ruins of ancient civilisations testify to long hours of hard work, to dedication, to the skill of craftsmen who risked their lives to make images to heathen gods, and it was all for nought. It is not enough to obtain a degree or to understand the laws of physics or know how to land a man on the moon, for all the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God and we must, above and before all else, learn to glorify and praise his Holy Name.

It is important that all that we do is done with the ultimate goal in view, to do all to His honour and glory. When God sends His son to fill the earth with the knowledge of the glory of the lord then we too shall be with him and shall be kings and priests and reign with him. For the moment our worldly acquaintances roar like lions. Let us be sure we are not like them.
