What do you think of when you hear the word hero? Do you think of a superpower, someone famous, or perhaps one who invented something we use everyday? When I think of a hero I think of someone who stands for what is right no matter what everyone else thinks or does–an individual who doesn’t cave in under peer pressure.
Daniel is an exceptional example of these heroic qualities of persistence, confidence, and bravery. No matter the situations in his life or what the people around him said he chose to follow what he believed in and what God asked him to do. Over the next few weeks, we’ll dive into the life of Daniel and investigate what made him so heroic and how it effected those around him.
One of my favorite quotes I think especially applies to Daniel’s life is: “The greatest want of the world is the want of men – men who will not be bought or sold; men who in their inmost souls are true and honest; men who do not fear to call sin by its right name; men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole; men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.” God calls each of us to be heroes for him no matter what situation we find ourselves in today.
