I want to be like Daniel in the Bible. Daniel did not reject Nebuchadnezzar. He befriended him. It is the most perfect demonstration of a compassionate approach to loving people while standing true to your convictions. They became such good friends that when the king asked Daniel to interpret the dream, Daniel was grieved by the dream and wished that the judgment would come on the enemies of Nebuchadnezzar…see Daniel 4:19. Daniel stood with the king and because he did, when the king’s life fell apart, it was Daniel who stood with him and helped pick up the pieces.
