The Book of Daniel in the Bible

Author: Daniel

Date: Late sixth century BC

Everyday Life Principles

Like Daniel, we must determine in our hearts that we will not defile ourselves, but that we will stay faithful to the Lord.

An excellent spirit is one of the be character qualities a person can have.

We must refuse to compromise or to allow the world's influence to cause us to turn from God.

Daniel is one of several biblical books that teach their lessons through a person's life. Two of the great lessons we learn from Daniel are excellence and courage.

Daniel 5:12 and Daniel 6:3 both tell us that Daniel had "an excellent spirit." Throughout the book of Daniel, we see him making excellent choices, and we read that he did things in an excellent way. But his choices and his actions were "fruits," not roots. The fruit of excellent decisions and behavior was rooted in his excellent spirit. As believers, you and I have God's Spirit living in us and we, like Daniel, can live with excellence because God is an excellent God!

Daniel also teaches us about courage. He was willing to suffer and even die for his beliefs. His courageous refusal to compromise landed him in a den of hungry lions, but God delivered him! Daniel ended up in a high government position; and the king of Babylon forsook his old ways, turned to God, and required his subjects to believe in God as well.

As you read the book of Daniel, I pray that you will be inpired to reach for higher levels of excellence in everything you do and taht your couage will be stirred. As we learn from Daniel, one uncompromising and brave person can change a nation!
