This morning we are going through Daniel chapter 3. We will continue looking at the historical background. What was the statue of gold? Where was it located? What was its purpose? Why was Daniel not thrown in the fire with his friends? Who was the mysterious being in the fire with them? We will also continue with our character study by looking at the courage and resolve that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego showed as an example for all of us. Our God can save us from our predicaments, but if He doesn’t, we will not leave Him and start serving other gods or worshipping idols.
