But Daniel resolved not to defile himself
with the royal food and wine.

Daniel 1:8

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!
