The Dream is Certain

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:

  1. The mountain covers the whole earth and never goes away.
  2. 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.
