Daniel 2:14  When Arioch, the commander of the king’s guard, came to kill them, Daniel handled the situation with wisdom and discretion. (NLT)

Daniel 2:49  At Daniel’s request, the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to be in charge of all the affairs of the province of Babylon, while Daniel remained in the king’s court. (NLT)

Consider the loudest voices of our day. How many of them are full of wisdom and discretion? 

Consider the most influential people of our day. How many of them use their platforms to open doors for others?

Daniel was a man who handled matters of life and death with wisdom and discretion. He used his prominence and significance to open doors for other leaders of wisdom and discretion. 

Who do you know who maximizes influence like this? 

How are you multiplying your influence to build a better world? 

Jeremiah wrote a letter to the exiles in Babylon explaining how long they would be held in captivity and what to do while they were there. You know 29:11, but how familiar are you with verse 7?

“And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile.
Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.”

Daniel and his three friends did what God spoke through Jeremiah. 

The cities and towns where we live should be better because we live there. How can God use you and me to build a better world? What is he doing around us, and how can we join him in his work? This is a good prayer to pray. This is a good way to live today and every day.

I will live with wisdom and discretion and use what influence I have for the benefit of others.

Our Father, open my eyes to what you are doing around me. Show me how I may join you in building a better community. Empower me to empower others. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
