Do you remember last week – we studied about pride? We learned that God has given us everything that allows us to feel pride – our skills, our resources, the opportunities – and that we must honor Him, and give credit & glory to God for all of our good works. We dishonor Him if we don’t.
In today’s lesson we’ll learn about:
- Obedience: Daniel obeyed God’s commandments and laws. Because he did so, others learned that he was responsible and trustworthy, and gave him a great deal of responsibility .
- Relationship: Daniel loved the Lord. He studied scripture and prayed often. As a result, his relationship with the Lord was very real and a very important part of his life.
- Faith: Daniel’s relationship with the Lord led to him having strong faith. His trust in God was evident while he was in the lion’s den.
