Jesse Tree: Day 20

December 18

Scripture:  Daniel 6

Reading:  God wants to be the most important thing in our lives: more important than our family, more important than our things, more important than even our own lives. Daniel understood that; he worshiped God even though it might cost him everything, even his own life.

It was against the law for Daniel to worship God, but Daniel knew that God is the only true God, and he would not stop worshiping God. Daniel was punished for breaking the law, and he was put in a pit with lions. But God protected Daniel from becoming the lions’ dinner. People learned of God’s power because of Daniel, and many others worshiped God because Daniel had trusted and honored God.

Talk About:  Who do you love the most?

Prayer:  Savior God, it is not always easy to love you more than anything else. Help us to trust and honor you each day.
