Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.
Daniel had an excellent spirit.
He did what he did, well.
Christians can do that too.
Wherever we may find ourselves in life, imagine what would it look like if we lived with an excellent spirit in us?
Martin Luther King Jr once said:
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
Can we do that?
People around us would then consider: “What is it that makes him shine so?”
We can point to God who deserves all credit, glory and honor!
