Pastor Dan shared from Daniel 1:3-15, with a special focus on verse 8 which says…
“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself by eating the king’s food or drinking his wine…”
We learned about how Daniel made hard decisions throughout his life, and how even in the face of possible death, he would not make himself unclean by living like the world around him.
Daniel “purposed” or made a strong decision not to allow things to creep into his life, or to keep him from developing his relationship with God. We have to do the same! It is easy to allow things that seem small to turn into large traps in our lives.
Integrity = Completeness, wholeness, honesty
Integrity is developed behind closed doors when no one is looking!
This was the question we asked ourselves…
How do I act when others aren’t around to see?
