And its interpretation is sure.
Reading Daniel 2 in my devotions this morning (October 17, on the M’Cheyne calendar – I’m only 2 months behind!), I am always profoundly struck by Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s interpretation. I know a lot of people like to focus on the different levels of the image in the dream. But two other things always stand out to me:
- The mountain covers the whole earth and never goes away.
- The first thing that Nebuchadnezzar does after having his dream interpreted is build a statue of his own, presumably something like what he saw in the dream. Only his statue is gold all the way down.
