Today, we will continue studying the book of Daniel from the Old Testament. In today’s lesson, there is a new king, King Belshazzar. He is the son of King Nebuchadnezzar and he needs Daniel to help him understand a mysterious message.
Today, we will learn about:
- How God gives us reason to have confidence.
- How self-pride dishonors God.
- What it means when we say “Pride comes before a fall”.

Now, sit with your teachers for a little while to LISTEN to this story about Daniel 5 – Writing on the Wall.
Last week’s video was about Daniel’s friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and how they trusted God completely! Daniel returns to our lesson today, so get comfortable and watch to learn a little bit more about what happened when a new king needs his help and the help of the God Daniel worships.
SING & DANCE IN WORSHIP:
Don’t you love to sing praise to God? Did you know that worship songs are another form of prayer to God? He loves to hear our praise and prayer! Let’s raise our voices and move it! And while we are praising, let’s remember those around us who really need the Lord’s help today as well as those who don’t know about Jesus. Let’s lift them up to the Lord, too!
The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.Proverbs 22:4
