Word: Then these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.” Daniel 6:1-5.
Thought: In most of the places we are in today, we could breathe politics in the air and there are people who do not like you going up the ladder and there are many who want to pull you down. The first people try to find out in us is our mistakes and are we able to be a testimony that people are able to see us blameless in the responsibility that God has given to us? It most matters in our work, but also reflects on family and ministry – the world is watching over us and find a mistake in us, but are we able they able to testify like the people who sought to accuse Daniel said “but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him”. The second part of it is also equally important in our lives that we do not compromise the word of God and tend to live perfect in accordance to the world – we need to be clear on not compromising in anyways that men may find fault through it. Daniel was able to serve 4 kings under 2 different kingdoms, yet unshakably on the top since he was perfect at his work and did not compromise on things of God – Let us reflect our lives and not be living to please to our boss, but do the work diligently, since your boss might change, but the one who has placed you will never change.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to do the work you have given to me diligently being accountable to you and not the way pleasing to man. Help me to be a testimony for you in the place where you have placed me. Amen.
