Daniel was a child when he was taken prisoner. His captors offered him royal food, but Daniel would only eat foods allowed by his God. His captors told him to bow to a royal statue, but Daniel refused to bow, except to his God. His captors trained him to be wise, but Daniel was wiser still because he loved God. When Daniel was an old man, his captors were captured, and Daniel worked for the king who conquered them. Lions wouldn’t eat Daniel, liars couldn’t destroy him, and kings couldn’t kill him, because Daniel loved and trusted and obeyed God.
