Day 329

“Please test us for ten days on a diet of vegetables and water,” Daniel said. “At the end of the ten days, see how we look compared to the other young men who are eating the king’s food. Then make your decision in light of what you see.”

At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king. (‭Daniel‬ ‭1‬:‭12-13, 15‬ NLT)

So a vegetarian diet got Daniel out of trouble there. Not only that, but he thrived on it!

I knew the story of Dem Bones from Ezekiel well, but I was surprised to learn that the story of the bones that came back to life was only one chapter in what turned out to be a long book.

So I am happy that the book of Daniel has got off to a good start.

Can’t wait for the lion with the thorn!
