Hot Weather

It is summer here in Iowa. Today and for the next few days we will look at some things that Iowans experience during summer. One thing that we have every summer is hot weather. We usually have several weeks when the temperatures are 90 degrees and higher.
In our Bible Reading today, we learn about three men who experienced some very hot temperatures! Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego loved and obeyed God. The king of Babylon made a golden idol and commanded that everyone bow down to the idol. But Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow to the idol. So the king threw them into a hot furnace. This furnace was so hot that it “killed the strong soldiers…when they went close to the fire” (verse 22). But God saved Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from the furnace.
God protected Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He will protect you, too. Obey God’s Word and serve Him today.
