We are beginning a series this Sunday I am calling “Allegiance.” It is a series on the life of Daniel and the three Hebrew friends. My goal is to reflect on the lives of people who lived in a truly hostile environment and still carved out their deep faith in God to not only “live for God” but… hold on to your seats here… bless the hostile culture in which they found themselves.
Daniel 1 is up first and we will NOT be talking about nutrition!
How Daniel and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego ended up with incredible wisdom wasn’t reflected in their nutrition package.
20 In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom. (Dan. 1:20)
Let’s talk about what Daniel DID have that set him apart… and how that reflects in our present day.
