Last Sunday at the nursing home my husband preached from the third chapter of the book of Daniel. He spoke about the king who made a golden image. All the people were told that when they heard the sound of music, they were to fall down and worship the golden image. Those that refused would be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Two choices, worship an idol or be thrown into a fiery furnace! Three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, refused to obey the king. They said our God can deliver us “But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.” The king threw them into the furnace for their refusal to obey him, but God intervened and the three men were unharmed.
Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.
Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself . . .
