Humility comes before honor, is a statement that gives new and fresh meaning to life. King Nebuchadnezzar was among the strongest leaders in his time. In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it (Daniel 1:1). He captured Israelites from the royal family and the nobility, young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in his palace. Nebuchadnezzar was a proud ruler. He made a golden statue of himself for all people to worship the idol but Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego believed in God and His salvation power. They could not worship the statue and were thrown into the blazing furnace. A fourth man was witnessed in the furnace of fire, and Jesus saved them (Daniel 3:25). When he was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, “Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” (Daniel 4:30). Even as the words were on his lips, a voice came from heaven, “This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar: Your royal authority has been taken from you. You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes”(Daniel 4:31-32). King Nebuchadnezzar fell and began feeding on grass like an ox, his body grew hair like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird. King Nebuchadnezzar humbled himself before God. He spoke saying, “praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble” (Daniel 4:37). Nebuchadnezzar is a classical case of how humility come before honor before God, which we should learn from.
