I’m sure you have heard the story of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego more than once but something I found when reading the book of Daniel again is something really remarkable. In each part of the story these four young men did remarkable things that made them stand out in the eyes of their superior’s. The first account you will find in Daniel 1:6:20. In this portion these 4 guys were being groomed to be wise men for the king and in that grooming process they were offered their choice of wine and food. Daniel spoke up for them and asked that they just have vegetables and water instead of wine and royal food. The official was reluctant but finally gave in and in 10 days he discovered that these 4 young men were stronger and looked better nourished than the other young men. Because they were willing to stand out God blessed them with wisdom and understanding beyond their years…….
