DANIEL AND THE KING’S MEAT
By Rev. Dean Beaty 2/25/08
When Daniel was a teen age lad They took him from his land.
Into a foreign place they went, before a king to stand.
They were looking for some youths, their skills to make complete.
And in the palace they would live and eat the king’s own meat.
But when they gave them palace food, Daniel refused to eat.
It would be against his God and it would bring defeat.
Water to drink and beans to eat would be their daily food.
So for ten days that’s all they ate and yet their looks were good.
When the king examined them, not being wined and dined.
He found their wisdom and their skills were wholesome and refined.
They might have said, “No one will know, we are so far way.”
But trusting God they did what’s right. Obedience won that day.
