“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
—1 Thessalonians 5:18
Daniel was a man of God and a man of prayer who was an adviser to the king. The other advisers were upset that Daniel was greatly loved and respected by the king, but the problem was that Daniel didn’t have any skeletons in his closet.
They said, in effect, “We have to get rid of this creep. He’s getting all the attention. Let’s bring this guy down.” So they decided to get a law passed that would trap him. They knew Daniel had an interesting habit. Every day he opened his windows, faced Jerusalem, and got down on his knees and gave thanks to God.
