Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin
I love reading Bible stories to the boys. It is so refreshing to read these familiar accounts with the eyes of a child. Tonight we read the accounts of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace and then the one where Daniel has to interpret the writing on the wall. Obviously the kids version is quite dramatic, yet simple. It doesn't include the words: "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin" (thankfully), which were the actual words written on the wall.
If you want to know what they mean you will have to look it up yourself -
That's your home-work for today :)
May God bless us with enough simplicity to read and understand his word.
Living in Grace,
