Memorable Scripture: Pride hides

Daniel 2:46-47
Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him. The king answered Daniel, and said, “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret.”

It would seem that Daniel’s revelation of his dream caused Nebuchadnezzar to proclaim Daniel’s God as THE GOD.
However, the king is a proud individual and his ego will not let go of his own importance, as you will soon see.
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Prov 16:18
A big problem with pride and the destruction that follow it is the destruction often affects others around the prideful person. A prideful person is a danger to others!
A prideful person can get others hurt or killed.
The proud person seeks his/her own self-preservation above all else, leaving others behind.
Despite his profession about God, pride is hidden inside the heart of Nebuchadnezzar.
