Daniel 1:1-15

I will commit to God’s way, knowing that it is always better.

SCRIPTURE: If sinners entice you, do not consent. – Proverbs 1:10 (NRSV)

Sitting in a hall with my fellow university classmates, I waited in tense silence for the French test to be distributed. This was my final language exam, and I needed to pass. But when the test was handed out, I couldn’t make sense of it. I noticed my classmates cheating and was tempted to join them, thinking, Cheat now and repent later. God is merciful, right? You don’t want to risk failing.

We’ve all experienced situations like this. Like Eve, we feel tempted by fruit that would compromise the life God wants us to have.

The key to standing our ground against temptation is to know our convictions and commit to them in our hearts.

Daniel modeled this when he resolved to keep the diet laid out in the Jewish law and avoid foods provided by the king of Babylon. God honored and rewarded his commitment. When we know what our faith requires and commit to it, we can fight temptation — even if that means failing and retaking a French test like I did.

Dear Lord, teach us the truth of your word. Empower us to live in ways that glorify you. Amen.
