Scripture Lesson: Daniel 3:13-30
On this date in 1996, Earl Weaver was elected to the Hall of Fame
by the Veterans’ Committee. Weaver spent 17 seasons as manager for the
Baltimore Orioles. He was known for his fiery demeanor and for the way he
always stood up for his players. Weaver was known to get in heated arguments
with umpires. Weaver was ejected 91 times during regular season games.
Today’s scripture passage is about a group of fiery leaders:
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These three men would not bow down and worship
the huge statue of King Nebuchadnezzar. The penalty for not doing so was to be
tossed in a fiery furnace so hot that the guards who put the three men into the
furnace died. When the king looked into the furnace he saw four people instead
of three. He called for the three to come out of the furnace and they did so, without
even one singed hair. Because of their faith and the protection of God, the
Babylonian king also praised God.
we respond when our faith comes under fire?
about a time it was hard to stand up for your faith.
we learn from the faith of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego?
Our faith can withstand anything when we choose to stand with God!
