a cautionary tale
We get multiple examples of the same lesson today. Belshazzar doesn't learn from Nebuchadnezzar. The people in Peter's example don't learn from the better examples they have. And in the Psalms, we get another example of people who just don't learn.
It's a little ironic to learn from people who don't learn, isn't it? You'd think it would be better to learn from people who DO learn? But we seem to learn best by reading about people who give us a negative example. The cautionary tale.
Let's choose to be wise today, and learn from others' mistakes.
God, thanks for teaching us through our own mistakes - and those of others.
