The story of Daniel in the Lion's Den is familiar to those of us who grew up in the church. It is a story of Faith and miracles. These verses that proceed Daniels' arrest and important, yet we do not often read them. Daniel was a slave, captured by the Babylonians. No matter how long he had lived in slavery, he had remained faithful to his God, by eating habits and prayer. He was an excellent worker and loved by the King. All of these traits did not endear him to those he who worked with him. They were jealous, simple as that. They plotted against him. These are human conditions that this story warns us about. But more importantly, Daniel had faith that his God would protect him and he did.
Prayer: Gracious God may I be like Daniel and never hide my faith in you. May I always keep your laws and commandments. Give me a prayer life like Daniel. Amen
