Photo Credit Belshazzar’s Feast, by Rembrandt. Representation of the biblical passage in Daniel 5:1-31

Describing the picture – 5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king’s palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

6 Then the king’s countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, etc

Here is my version of wonder about this situation.

Wonder is an emotion comparable to surprise that people feel when perceiving something rare or unexpected.

An emotion of wonder can be pleasant, positive and intensify the feeling of surprise.

Now the fact about the all this is how you describe this story from the Bible.

Quote for thought.

“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us the less taste we shall have for the destruction of our race. Wonder and humility are wholesome emotions, and they do not exist side by side with a lust for destruction.
