In this story, prophet Daniel points out King Belshazzar’s sin of pride and arrogance, but he refuses to acknowledge it. Since he does not submit, and does not humble himself, he faces judgement, and this is what this handwriting on the wall is all about.
What are some signs of pride of in human life? These signs help us see whether someone has the sin of pride in their life or not. The opposite of pride is humility that God wants to see in our lives. When it comes to humility, we are to follow the example of Christ who in the apostle Paul’s words being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant.
