The Insanity of Pride

June 14, 2015 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Daniel

Scripture: Daniel 4:19–4:37

The Insanity of Pride
Daniel 4:19–37
June 14, 2015


I. An announcement of impending judgment. Daniel 4:19–27, 37; Acts 17:30

II. The slide into insanity. Daniel 4:28–33; Romans 1:28

III. The experience of full restoration. Daniel 4:34–37

Questions for reflection:

  • What are the ways in which we in our pride rob God of his glory?
  • How is spiritual insanity a consequence of rejecting God or taking our eyes off God and focusing only on ourselves and the world? What might ‘spiritual insanity’ look like?
  • What does it mean for us to surrender to the truth that ‘the Most High rules?’
  • What encouragement or hope flows out of this story?
