In this passage, we have an account of the young Hebrew boy, Daniel, who was approximately 14 years old making a request not to partake in the food that the king provided as it would violate the dietary laws he purposed in his heart to follow. Quite a bold move for such a young boy but reflective of his upbringing. You see, it wasn’t just that Daniel decided at that very moment to do what was right. He made the commitment to follow God at a much earlier age so that when the time would come for testing, he would be prepared to do what was pleasing to the Lord!
