Daniel’s Godly Example
The more I meditate upon and learn from the life of Daniel, the more I am impressed and impacted by it.
Daniel was one of a very small group of men who had nothing negative recorded about him. He was a prophet, statesman, an intellectual, and most of all, a very godly man. He is called greatly beloved of the Lord (Daniel 9:23; 10:11,19), and thus is an Old Covenant parallel to the apostle John of the New Covenant. John was the disciple whom Jesus loved, as Daniel was a man greatly beloved. This does not suggest that others are not loved by the Lord, rather it is to state that these two men had uniquely endeared themselves to our Father.
I want to learn more of Daniel, learn more from Daniel.
Last night I gave a brief 30-minute study on Daniel’s life, taken mostly from chapter 1 of that great prophetic book.
