From The Lion's Mouth: A Story of Daniel the Prophet
Daniel was born more than 600 years before the birth of Jesus. When he was a teenager, the Jewish nation was conquered by King Nebuchadnezzar, and Daniel was taken to Babylon as a hostage. Because of his wisdom, he was selected to become an adviser to the King of Babylon. Daniel put God first in his life, and was obedient and faithful to God’s laws—even when doing so put his own life in danger. When the king had Daniel thrown into a lions’ den, God saved Daniel. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Daniel the prophet, who trusted in God and showed great courage when he placed the laws of God above the demands of an earthly ruler.
