A Study in Daniel
13 and up
To study the book of Daniel with an eye for preparing students to successfully walk with God through a life in which non believers and godless patterns of behavior often times heavily influence the cultures in which we live.
To better understand God’s vision of greatness: helpful love and service – not selfish ambition.
To understand that it is possible to be both godly and successful in this life.
To notice that Daniel was more successful than his peers precisely because of his relationship with God.
To notice Daniel’s trust in God’s word as a reliable source of knowledge that is pertinent to real life: to recognize that faith and science don’t exclude one another, but that God’s word is the first and most reliable authority.
Also to understand that through our relationship with God and through humility, anyone can live out greatness in God’s Kingdom, that nobody is disqualified.
To understand God’s love for mankind as those created in His image, and to understand His heart to be reconciled to mankind.
To notice that through seasons of brokenness, God restores people to the greatness for which He created us all.
