But Daniel resolved not to defile himself
with the royal food and wine.
It’s the experience of many believers in the Lord Jesus that quite apart from when they were first saved, there comes a time in their life when they realise the need for a more wholehearted commitment to really living and serving as disciples of the Lord Jesus, making up their mind and taking their stand from that time on.
Daniel was a young man (late teens or early twenties) when his faith compelled him to make his stand!
