This week’s Downloadable Worksheet can be found here: Daniel’s Choices
This is an accompaniment to our online ICE Assembly which can be found here: The story of Daniel – Part One
This worksheet will help you think about the choices that you’re making every day.
What kind of things would you like to see grow in your life? Maybe kindness or gentleness, perhaps a heart that doesn’t give up or a listening ear.
When we choose to grow these values in our lives, we’re making a decision to pick those choices every day. Many of these choices will be small, like being kind on a bad day or putting someone else first, and some will be big like Daniel’s choice, choosing to stand out from the crowd by following God’s way.
Daniel knew that God was with him when he made that big choice, and God didn’t let Daniel down as he kept on following Him. I’m sure that Daniel asked God for help every day to help him keep on going and to help him encourage his friends too.
When we make our choices, we can ask for God’s help too – the Bible says ‘I can do all things through him who strengthens me.’ (Philippians 4:13.) With God’s help, we can even make the toughest decisions because He gives us the strength to keep on going!
