Daniel 2:30  “As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.”

Great leaders serve others. Poor leaders make everything about themselves. 

Daniel, in effect, says here, “It’s not about me.” 

What was important was not the messenger, but The Message. God was speaking to the king. It took someone who walked with God to deliver God’s message. 

With apologies to Marshall McLuhan, the medium was not the message. It was not Daniel’s platform that gave him this opportunity to speak into the king’s life. It was Daniel’s ear attuned to God’s voice that gave him the opportunity to take the action necessary to save many lives.

When you hear politicians politicking, when you hear celebrity sermonizers sermonize, listen carefully to their language. Those who talk about themselves —  “My administration” and “My church” — are quite likely leading us astray. 

Contrast this with Daniel’s way of life and his communication of every message he delivered. As he heard what God said, he wanted the intended recipients of the message to hear what God said. The Message is what mattered. 

Daniel knew better than to get in the way of The Message. 

Think of this way: Humans require spotlights. Jesus is the Light of the World.

I will hear and deliver God’s message without any desire for personal attention.

Our Father, give me ears to hear what you are saying. Empower me to deliver your truth in whatever manner you select. Deliver me from the temptations of excess attention. Amen.

Luke 6:27-31 “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”
