Do the Right Thing

 

In Daniel 1 we read about Daniel and his friends, and how they take a stand for their faith, but they do it in a way that’s maybe different than what we think of when we hear that phrase “take a stand for Jesus.” They do it so graciously that other people are just kind of drawn into the process.
Now, the background here is that the Babylonian Empire has conquered Jerusalem and taken thousands of Jews into exile in Babylon and Daniel and his friends are some of those people. It was very different to live as a teenager in Babylon than a teenager in Jerusalem. See, everything their Hebrew culture told them was good, Babylonian culture said was bad. What Hebrew culture said was bad, Babylonian culture said was good. Rather than become kind of cultural conformers, they become cultural transformers. Today we will explore how they achieved that.
