Chris Turner | Daniel 6:1-23
While many of the characters we've looked at in the Lessons for Life series had major flaws, Daniel is exceptional in that even his enemies could find no fault in him. Chris explains how Daniel remained true to God even after being taken into exile as a captive. It's a challenge to us all as we seek to live out our faith in a largely unbelieving world. (Sorry that the audio quality of the recording falls a bit short of the standard we like to achieve but the message is still perfectly clear.)

Daniel so distinguished himself among the chief ministers and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. At this, the chief ministers and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. Finally these men said, 'We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.'
