Follow God

Our Bible Reading tells us that the king of Babylon captured some young Jewish men. The king wanted to train these men to serve him.
Four of these men were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. All the young men received the same food and wine that was served to the king. But eating some of these foods was against God’s law. Daniel and his friends knew they would disobey God if they ate those foods. So Daniel asked that they only receive vegetables to eat and water to drink.
After ten days, Daniel and his friends were healthier than all the other young men. So Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah were allowed to have only vegetables and water.
Because these four men obeyed God, He blessed them. Verse 19b says, “So those four young men became the king’s servants.”
God will bless us, too, if we follow Him. Ask God to help you obey and serve Him today.
