distinctive

IMG_1624Daniel 1

These fantastic four exiles provide a lesson for believers today.  They have been taken out of their world and the world they live in is trying to conform them to it.  It is ironic that Judah had been put into exile because its people wanted to be like the nations around them.  But now these four heroes take a stand.  They will live among the Babylonians, even taking on Babylonian names, but they will be distinctive.  They will be different.  Their standards will be higher than their world.

LORD, make us people of a higher grade, a greater standard.
