Daniel's Type Spiritual Maturity . . . where is it today?

If a foreign power . . . invaded your country, and destroyed your hometown, burnt down your place of worship, and took you as a prisoner of war.

How would your react to your captors?

Did Daniel act like a typical human and succumb to the national spirit of pride and vow to avenge all wrongs.

I have yet to observe anyone that conducts themselves with the spiritual maturity of Daniel.

The Apostle Paul declares that God puts into place the powers that be. And those who make attempts to overthrow or criticize those powers do not have a true faith in God.

Somehow the majority of humans fail drastically to understand this spiritual principal.

The three Hebrew's . . . that would not bow down and worship a statue of the human King. Said to the King "Oh King . . . live forever." And God rescued them from the anger of the King. And then the King became their ally.

Isn't it like God . . . to do such a cool thing.

This example proves to us . . . we may not agree with our leaders . . . but we should be respectful . . . to show the world that we know God . . . and we know who is actually in charge all the time.

My plan is to have you fall in love with God.
