In this challenging world how can I be a person of courageous faith? Better yet, how can I rear my son or daughter with courageous faith? Daniel thrived in the most difficult circumstances because he exercised courageous faith in a dangerous world. He took God’s promises at face value and acted in accordance with that decision. God blessed that, his enemies attacked that, and his superiors respected that. Hostile culture, scheming co-workers, capricious bosses, political turmoil, and outright persecution caused Daniel’s faith to “shine like the brightness of the sky above . . . like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3 ESV). I believe there are lessons to be learned here. Interested? I am!
