Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. –Daniel 6:4
A young Christian professional interviewed for a position in a thriving business once, and brought with him a top-notch resume. In it, he listed many references, including his pastor, his Bible study teacher, and a church deacon.
Unbeknownst to the young man, the business owner was also a Christian. After he had studied the resume, he said, “Young man, I appreciate these recommendations from people in your church. However, what I would really like is a word of recommendation from people who know you during the week as well.”
Oftentimes, the way people live their lives on Sunday is very different when compared to the way they live their lives the rest of the week. Often people act differently at church than they do out in the real world. But the truth is, the biblical truth we hear on Sunday should also be practiced throughout the week! Worship should be a way of life…not a weekly event.
Daniel was a perfect example of someone who was consistent in his relationship with both God and man. In fact, even his enemies couldn’t find any fault with him!
As a follower of Christ, does your life look differently during the week than it does at church on Sunday? The old adage is true: “Actions speak louder than words.” Determine to live a consistent Christian life on Sunday and every other day of the week!
Ask the Lord to help you walk consistently with Him throughout the week…and pray that your life would be a constant reminder to those around you of Christ, the One you serve. (From Senior Living)
