[Today’s Firestarter is from the edition for families with children.]
Daniel proved that he was a wise and trusted advisor to the King Darius. The King put Daniel in charge of other officials. As you might guess, these other persons became very jealous of Daniel. Today’s episode tells of the powerful protection of Daniel by God.
What got Daniel into trouble was the awful decree that the King was the only one that could be prayed to! Daniel refused to do this. He used to pray three times a day to his one, true God. To remind him of this sacred connection to God, he would turn and face Jerusalem.
Here’s an idea. Go into your room and spend some minutes praying as you face the direction where your church is located. In your mind, make a connection by an imaginary straight line that joins you and the church. This can help to bring the feelings of worship that you hopefully have from your church, right into your heart at this very moment.
Mondays are dedicated to the reading of the Hebrew Prophets.
In the season of Kingdomtide this year, we read the Book of Daniel.
