Nebuchadnezzar's pride began in contentment and prosperity, but he had no peace of mind. It caused him to take credit for everything he'd achieved. God dehumanized him in a reflection of what pride had done to his heart. Only when he recognized his debt to God - and that he was the object of God's mercy - could he be humbled and healed of his pride. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 5, 1995. Series "The Seven Deadly Sins". Scripture: Daniel 4:24-37; Isaiah 52
