On the Wall

The first time the writing was on the wall, nobody could read it.

The King of Babylon — it was his wall that had been written on — called together all his great scientists and priests to translate it.

When they finally figured out what it said, it was a death threat to the King, who was not in the least bothered by it.

That very night, the King was killed and the empire he so treasured was divided between his enemies.

When the writing is on the wall, we shouldn’t ignore it. That’s why it’s on the wall — often written in blood.

It might say, “Go home.”

It could say, “You’ve failed.”

It often says, “Game over.”

But the message is always the same:

“You need a change.”
