03 Jan Daniel 1:8a

8 But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine.

King Nebuchadnezzar had a plan for Daniel and his friends to be trained and ready to serve his kingdom. Yesterday we learned they had to change their names. Today, we learn they had to eat food God did not permit. Daniel said “No Way!” To Daniel, obeying God was more important than even his name! Talk with your parents about whether being obedient to God every day is important to you? Why?
