While Daniel was serving in the Babylonian court, King Nebuchadnezzar built a golden image, commanding everyone to bow down to it. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused, and they were punished by being thrown into a fiery furnace—yet the flame did not hurt them. Alistair Begg reminds us that we, too, must stand against the images of worship in our culture by trusting God, defying man, and being willing to pay the ultimate price.
1King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits1 and its breadth six cubits. He set it up on the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
