Three Men’s Faithfulness
In the 6th century B.C., many Jews were captured and brought to Babylon. The powerful king, Nebuchadnezzar, believed he was a god. He built a huge statue of himself and ordered everyone to bow down and worship it. When three young Jewish men refused to bow down and worship the statue, the king threatened them with death in a fiery furnace. The three knew that the Ten Commandments forbade worshipping idols and they held fast to the truth of God. When they were thrown into the flames, they were ready to die for their faith, but God kept them safe.
If these three men could speak to us today, they would say, “Faithfulness to God is the right thing to do even if it costs you your job, your friends or your life. God can save you from anything. But even if he doesn’t intervene, still do what is right!”
