I’ve always loved the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Daniel Chapter 3. These three were completely loyal to God, despite the consequences. Those of us in the United States do not face death for worshipping Jesus. However, we have plenty of chances to show our loyalty, just like these three young men did. “For the three friends, the cost stared them in the face: death in the furnace. To us, the cost usually is subtle: inconvenience, a word of sarcasm from our friends who don’t understand, or being passed over because we’re “too weird” or “too religious (p.129).” Of all the places we can direct our loyalty, let’s make sure to direct it to the King of Kings, our Jesus.
