    All time is marked by GOD, no matter what place you hold in the world. Daniel let's us you should be on our mission while we have time. Time is soon gone and where will be then?

    Daniel brought out the fact that Belshazzar needed to humble himself in verse 22. God opposes the haughty ones.

    To Insight777 - it wasn't of Belshazzar that the robe 'n chain were put on Daniel; it was God's doing. In the next ch. Darius sets Daniel up over the princes - one of only 3. Daniel kept his walk with God - to be a witness to his own people as well as the gentiles. And God caused Darius to honor him. Nowhere does it say Daniel didn't want this. He knew he could use it for God's glory.
