from You Version
Read Daniel 1
Daniel and his friends are among those who are taken as captives to Babylon. Daniel is probably a teenager. He has witnessed firsthand the destruction of his homeland and now serves his oppressors. Daniel and his friends show a great deal of wisdom and courage by refusing to eat what was provided to them.
The food the king provided had to have looked and smelled pretty good. Refusing to eat the food could have resulted in his death. Is my faith in God this strong?
