“Tekel means ‘weighed’—you have been weighed on the balances and have not measured up.”
The other day I was at the gym, and an employee asked me if I wanted to step onto their scale. It was a very fancy scale, so I said okay. Then he measured me to see how tall I was. I discovered that I was shorter than I originally thought, and I weighed more than I was supposed to weigh.
On God’s scales, though, we want to weigh more, not less.
The Bible tells us about a spiritual lightweight, the grandson of King Nebuchadnezzar. His name was Belshazzar, and he went out of his way to mock God.
