YOUNG MEN WHO RESISTED TO TEMPTATION
THE KING of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, invaded the city of Jerusalem and commanded his soldiers to take all the gold and valuable things and to take the strongest and most intelligent young men as well. Do you know why did he take the young men, kids? He took them to train them for a period and then to separate the best to help him solving the problems of the kingdom. The king wanted the young men to be strong and healthy while they were studying and ordered them to eat the same food the cook would bring for him. What a comfort! Have you imagined eating the same food of the king?
At lunch time, many tasty things were served, but Daniel and his friends decided to eat only vegetables and drink only water. Do you know why, kids? Because that food was offered to the false god the king worshiped. Then they asked to the servant to let them eat only vegetables and not to worry for they were sure they would become stronger and more intelligent than the others. The servant was afraid that the king found out and punished him, but eventually agreed. After the period of training, the king has chosen the strongest and most handsome young men. Do you know who were chosen? Daniel and his three friends: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. They became stronger and more intelligent than the others.

Daniel loved and obeyed to the God creator of the heavens and earth, and continued doing so, even being in a land where people adored to false gods. They failed to encourage Daniel and his friends to displease God with their delicious food. And this is how we should proceed, steady with Jesus. We should be faithful and obedient to the Word of God for in the end of all we will be winners and happy.
