Day 90: Thankful Today for Daniel Chapter 1
We recently began our study in the book of Daniel. I am thankful that his story was included in God's word. I have often heard of the story of Daniel in the lion's den or fiery furnace, but not as much on the 1st book. In our study it is encouraging to see how Daniel kept his principles in something as simple as the food he would eat. It is an area that would be so easy to compromise on, but he didn't.
And as a result, God honored that commitment. Daniel was stronger than those who went along with that present culture. He also had favor even from those who did not serve his God and were in high places. Daniel shows how God rewards obedience. And God is pleased when we honor him.
