Daniel, the Leader

Yesterday was the elections for the Fairfield School Board. David had to go twice before he was able to vote. The line stretched outside of the courthouse and around the block.

A friend posted she went at 7:30 p.m. hoping for a shorter wait. At 8:00 p.m., when the polls were to close, they told them everyone in line would still get to vote. She waited 40 minutes.

There were several running for the seats on the school board. Some were publicly promoted by local organizations or a party.

Today, we read about Daniel. He was not popular and did not give in to pressure to change. Yet, the king wanted to set him over the whole realm.

Daniel 6:3, “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and officials because an excellent spirit was in him, and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” Modern English Version

Why did the King choose Daniel?
