In the Fire (pm)

King Nebuchadnezzar demanded that all his officials worship his idol, a tall golden image set up on the plain of Dura. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused – and that meant death. Their trust in God challenges us to make faithful choices when the state punishes righteous behavior.

Young Daniel was removed from his homeland in Judah and enrolled in a Babylonian training program aimed at re-educating him for service as an adviser to King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel and his three best friends resisted full assimilation into Babylonian culture – but they did so without being obnoxious.
