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.

Daily D – Zechariah 13:9

Zechariah 13:9 “This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’ ”

Daily D – Zechariah 9:9-10

Zechariah 9:9, 10 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.

Daily D – Ezra 3:12-13

Ezra 3:12, 13 But many of the older priests and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple, wept aloud when they saw the foundation of this temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy. No one could distinguish the sound of the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people made so much noise. And the sound was heard far away.

Daily D – Daniel 6:3

Daniel 6:3 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.

Daily D – Daniel 1:17-20

Daniel 1:17-20 To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds. At the end of the time set by the king to bring them into his service, the chief official presented them to Nebuchadnezzar. The king talked with them, and he found none equal to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; so they entered the king’s service. In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.
