The Bible is filled with people who were willing to take a stand, even if that meant they had to stand alone.
Daniel is one of my favorites. He so stood out from the crowd, his peers knew he was making them look bad. Their plan was simple…except they couldn’t find ANY skeletons in his closet. Squeaky clean, Daniel was a man that stood up for God and left an impression that still inspires us today.
“Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. At this, the administrators 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.” (Daniel 6:3-5 NIV)
