Daniel- A Man of Integrity, No Lion!

Daniel- A Man of Integrity, No Lion!Episode #23: Daniel- A Man of Integrity, No Lion!

This podcast explores the life of a man of such integrity that even a den full of hungry lions couldn’t devour him! Daniel’s integrity would serve him well as he dutifully served three kings during his time in Babylon. However, his strong convictions would land him in a precarious situation; the miraculous outcome is so well-known that it’s still discussed in children’s books and sermons.

Daniel lived from around 620 BC- 535 BC. It’s estimated that he lived to be at least 85 years old, maybe more! Daniel’s name means “God is my judge,” and he is the author of the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. After being forcibly taken to Babylon, Daniel, along with three of his friends, Shadrach; Meshach; and Abednego, were sent to train to serve in the court of King Nebuchadnezzar.

The Lord bestowed upon Daniel the ability to interpret dreams and visions, which he would put into practice many times with the kings he served. Daniel also grew in favor with the kings, Darius in particular. But, the king’s favor would not save him when he continued to pray to his God after a decree was issued for everyone to pray to King Darius alone. Jealous leaders discovered Daniel, seeking to frame him, and the king had no choice but to throw him into the lion’s den.

The next morning, King Darius was thrilled to find that the Living God had saved Daniel from the lions. As a result, Darius declared that everyone in the kingdom should worship the one true God only.

Listen in to find out what we can learn from the remarkable life of faith that Daniel led that we can apply to our own lives as Christians.
