“But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.”  Daniel 1:8

Daniel strictly followed God’s commands even when it was personally inconvenient. Daniel’s commitment to obey God paid off in the end. Daniel put God first, and God promoted Daniel in every situation of his life. The Lord is the source of our life. If we commit our lives to Him, He will make our paths straight.

Dear Lord, Open my eyes to the truth and goodness of obeying You no matter what. Amen.
