‎​CONTEMPORARY YOUTH AND CONTEMPORARY LIVING. 1 August 24(Sat),2013 Daniel 1:12&17 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. To Daniel and his three friends; Hananiahn Mishael and Azariah contemporary living without conformity with God’s standard wasn’t an option. The Chief of staff to the king had their names changed to god’s given names that were in vogue in the acient world super power country of Babylon, but Daniel and his friends had their Godly identity intact. They knew the consequence of allowing the affliction of slavery break their bond with the Almighty God. Joseph suffered similar fate of temporary affliction that he overcame by being focused on his Godly ordained purpose. Abuse of life is when skewed interpretation is given to situations of life in order for one to level up with the enemies of God. Babylon at the time Jehoiakim was toppled happened to be deeply involved in idolatory. They had culture of worshipping gods that Daniel and his friends would not recognise. As a vibrant youth, purposeful individual, focus minded fellow, tongue speaking person and rapture expectant brother/sister, contemporary eveil should not change your approach of worshipping God in truth and in spirit. Loosing focus in life starts with loosing God. Place priceless premium on your salvation and if modernisation, civilisation, contemporary happenings or stark evil practices comes to you as an option to jettison God’s way, please take your stand. It is those that stand for God that God will stand with throughout their trying moment. Remember, Daniel and friends were rewarded with sound health, fame, royal honour and special recognition because they stood for God in a contemporary world filled with evil. Do have a blessing filled afternoon.
