This is a good re-telling of the Bible story and written very well.

a good one. I am not sure that Daniel was a teenager at this point but maybe he was. Thanks for getting inside his skin for us!

Yes, I believe that Daniel would have been a teenager and as such your retelling is appropriate for the topic. Daniel's issue with the food may to some extent have had to do with it not being kosher. But this doesn't account for his refusing the wine. Most probably the meat and wine had been offered food to the king's idols and hence eating and drinking was regarded as partaking in the worship of those same idols, something that Daniel was not prepared to do.

I forget how young Daniel is when I think of his great faithfulness I enjoyed this Biblical story from his POV; you made me remember. Congrats on being Highly Commended. :)

Loved this re-telling of a special Bible story. I wish more of our teens today had the courage of conviction that Daniel had.
Thank you for your kind words about my entry.
