Good morning people who learn from the example of Daniel
King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that disturbed him. He asked the wise men of Babylon to tell him what he dreamed and then interpret the dream for him. They rightfully said no one can do this. The king was infuriated and ordered all the wise men to be killed. This included Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Now let's pick up the story from the Bible.
Daniel 2:14 (NIV) When Arioch, the commander of the king’s guard, had gone out to put to death the wise men of Babylon, Daniel spoke to him with wisdom and tact.
It's just a couple of words, but did you see them? Daniel spoke to the person sent to destroy him, with wisdom and tact. I love this!
"In times of difficulty, how do you and I speak?"
Our words can literally change the atmosphere and the outcome. Let's choose our words wisely today.
