Dan 5

Persians waiting to attack.
Belshazzar co-ruled.
God judged the arrogant and proud ruler.
Do we defile the temple of God like Belshazzar?
Idolatry: not attributing our success to God.
Do not be found wanting.
Nothing is hidden from God.
Babylon / the ivory tower / our hearts.
Self denial: everything we substitute for God. Epicureanism, pleasure is the greatest good.
