The word of the day is “relevance.” God has always been willing to teach his people what it means to follow him. Daniel was able to teach the people because he was relatable. This prophet lived with the Babylonians and identified with their struggles and lifestyle. Daniel's ability to connect with the people came from his willingness to listen and learn from God…
“Then Daniel was brought in before the king. The king spoke, and said to Daniel, ‘Are you that Daniel who was one of the captives from Judah, whom my father the king brought from Judah? I have heard of you, that the spirit of God is in you, and that the light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.’”
My question is: do you live in a way that is worth following? My prayer is that as you go through these next few years of life, you become an influencer and leader to those among you. God will make your voice relevant if you give him the chance. Choose your words and actions carefully, and you will glorify God by doing so.
Praying for you,
