Daniel

Here’s what happened when Joel and his dad, Simon, read ‘Daniel’ together.

 
Joel enjoys drawing and colouring when he goes to church.

Joel said: It’s a bit confusing the king wanted Daniel alive but put him with the lions.

 

 

 

Simon said: Even the king had to follow the law. The law might be a good law or a bad law, but the king would be frightened of the law not being followed. He probably thought chaos is worse than anything else. A bit like at school – a teacher might have to punish a child that was usually good, but who did something wrong because the teacher wants everyone to follow the rules.

Here’s what happened when Joel and his mother, Ana, read this Bible story together.

10 year old Joel enjoys swimming and mathematics. He lives in Argentina.

Joel asked: How could Daniel trust God so much?

 

 

 

Ana answered: Ever since his childhood, Daniel had been taught the history of the Hebrews, all about how they left Egypt and the 10 Commandments. He knew of God’s supernatural power and the miracles he had done for them. Those stories had been passed from generation to generation, until his parents shared them with him, and even later again in school.

Although Daniel’s life was at risk he didn’t stop obeying and honouring his God. “Do not worship any God except me.” (Exodus 20:1-7 CEV). Daniel followed God’s instructions and God protected him.

What the king wished for Daniel really happened! “You have been faithful to your God, and I pray that he will rescue you.” (Daniel 6:16)

When we obey God, we can be sure he will protect us.
