Jan 19: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


So overlooked: Daniel, Shadrach, Meshack and Abendnego all committed themselves to be intellectual learners; not just faithful servants. Daniel 1

A person’s true character reveals itself in how they explain their circumstances – good and bad. Daniel 2:17-28

“The God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed…it will itself endure forever.” Daniel 2:44

Ever find it funny how Daniel interpreted the unknown dream for Nebuchadnezzer, then Nebuchadnezzer immediately turned around and made an exact replica of the gold head he was supposed to represent in the dream; then making people worship it? So strange… Daniel 3:1-6

Death happens when ‘yes men’ surround leaders. Daniel 3:8-15

Miracles happen when there is no other conviction than to trust in God no matter what. Daniel 3:19-27

Nebuchadnezzer just doesn’t get it, does he? After the miracle of the furnace he wants to ‘cut to pieces’ all who now don’t worship the God of Shadrach, Meshack and Abendnego. Geez. Daniel 3:29

Much love.
