Read Daniel 3:1 through 4:37; 1 Peter 3:1–22
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander (1 Peter 3:15–16).
It sounds like Peter may have had in mind the four Jewish young men who served in a pagan king’s court. Whether refusing to bow to an idol or interpreting dreams, Daniel and his friends were always courteous even while living openly for the one true God. Nebuchadnezzar could give them Babylonian names and positions, but they remained unswervingly and unashamedly Jewish in thought, speech, and action.
When everyone else was bowing before the king’s idol, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego literally stood out in the crowd.
What do God’s people today do? Do their actions cause others to see their faith and ask why they are different?
Challenge for Today: Think back to your conversations this last week and evaluate whether anyone listening would think you are a Christian.
Quicklook: 1 Peter 3:13–17
